Recent financial institution regulatory activity

July 20, 2010

By staff

Regulatory actions reported by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency this month fell by more than half from last month. Regulatory activity by other financial institution regulators was also soft.

The OCC last week reported that it recently issued or terminated 21 regulatory actions -- a far cry from the 46 actions reported last month. The OCC charters, regulates and supervises all national banks.

Among the latest actions were the following four cease-and-desist orders. Bank failures are often preceded by cease-and-desist orders.
