The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation’s 2022–2026 Strategic Plan will guide our efforts to carry out the agency’s mission, including maintaining stability and public confidence in the nation’s financial system by insuring deposits, examining and supervising financial institutions for safety and soundness and consumer protection, making large and complex financial institutions resolvable, and managing receiverships. This plan was approved by the Board of Directors on December 14, 2021.
This strategic plan comes at a moment of inflection for the agency and for our country as we move into our “new normal” amidst the ever-evolving pandemic. Since FDIC insurance began in 1934, we have protected bank depositors and buttressed trust in our banking system as our nation faced challenges large and small.
In this 2022–2026 Strategic Plan, we outline our strategic goals and objectives, and the means and strategies we will use to achieve them. We also identify challenges associated with a post-pandemic economy in the years to come. In turn, this strategic plan will be implemented through annual performance plans with goals, indicators, and targets for each strategic objective. Our goals are ambitious and our success is crucial to individuals, households, businesses, and communities across the country.
I want to thank the FDIC workforce for their continued dedication and resilience during the pandemic. Their hard work has allowed the agency to achieve its mission during these unprecedented times and to move forward on important new initiatives, including encouraging innovation, supporting community and mission-driven banks, and fostering a banking system that can meet the needs of business and consumers across our nation.
