Institutions Endure Regulatory Actions

Mortgage News

Monthly regulatory activity eased at the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. Including matters at other federal banking regulators, however, more than a hundred actions have been announced during the past month against financial institutions.

After jumping to 104 during March, the number of matters processed by the FDIC fell to 76 in April. But activity was lower a year ago at 57 actions.

All the activity helps identify troubled institutions, including some that will fail.

Cease-and-desist orders — which often preceed bank failures — accounted for 43 of the FDIC’s matters in April. The companies listed below were recently hit with FDIC cease-and-desist orders.
