The FDIC has released its Summer edition of its Supervisory Insights Journal. The Summer 2017 issue of Supervisory Insights features two articles of interest to examiners, bankers, and supervisors.
The first article emphasizes the importance of liquidity risk management and describes contingency funding strategies to help community banks mitigate potential stress. The second article provides an overview of the Bank Secrecy Act/Anti-Money Laundering (BSA/AML) examination and discusses trends in supervision and enforcement.
“Community Bank Liquidity Risk: Trends and Observations from Recent Examinations” emphasizes the importance of liquidity risk management and describes contingency funding strategies to help community banks mitigate potential stress.
“The Bank Secrecy Act: A Supervisory Update” provides an overview of the BSA/Anti-Money Laundering (AML) examination, discusses trends in supervision and enforcement, and includes examples of rare, but significant, failures identified by examiners in BSA/AML compliance programs.
Supervisory Insights provides a forum for discussing how bank regulation and policy are put into practice in the field, promoting sound principles and practices for bank supervision, and communicating about the emerging issues that bank supervisors face.
