June 22, 2020  |  FIL-62-2020

Summary:

For the first time in nearly a decade, the FDIC unveiled a comprehensive overhaul of the agency's flagship website. The newly redesigned FDIC.gov offers bankers, consumers, and analysts easier access to the agency's most popular content, including a new Banker Resource Center.

Statement of Applicability to Institutions with Total Assets under $1 Billion: This Financial Institution Letter (FIL) applies to all FDIC-insured institutions.

Highlights:

  • The Banker Resource Center provides a one-stop shopping experience for directors, trustees, officers, and staff of FDIC-supervised institutions seeking supervisory resources to promote the safe-and-sound delivery of banking services and products for their community and customers.
  • The Banker Resource Center has information on topics such as accounting, credit, consumer compliance, capital markets, and the Bank Secrecy Act, as well as relevant informational videos and prior webcasts and teleconferences.
  • A streamlined FDIC Resources page on the redesigned website offers a wealth of information about how the agency is meeting its essential mission to ensure that financial institutions operate safely and soundly, to protect the deposits of consumers, and to resolve failed banks.
  • A new Analysis page provides trusted research and data on the state of the U.S. banking industry and the broader financial sector.
  • The News section delivers regular updates on FDIC activities and banking developments, including policy changes, speeches and testimony, video content, upcoming events, and a new FDIC podcast.
  • Visitors to FDIC.gov can locate information based on who they are—bankers, consumers or analysts. Frequent users of the FDIC’s website will also be able to use their existing bookmarks that will redirect them to the information they routinely seek.
  • The newly redesigned website continues to have easily accessible information critical to financial institutions and consumers impacted by COVID-19.
