Letter to Stakeholders Fourth Quarter 2004 Edition of the FDIC's Letter to Stakeholders

Summary: The FDIC has issued its quarterly Letter to Stakeholders, which reports on the FDIC's priorities and activities for the fourth quarter of 2004. The Letter to Stakeholders is attached.

  • The FDIC had many accomplishments in the fourth quarter of 2004, including:
    • Issuing a study on “account-hijacking” identity theft.
    • Issuing, with other bank and thrift regulators, guidance on Internal Ratings-Based Systems for Retail Credit Risk for Regulatory Capital – a major step in the domestic implementation of the Basel capital scheme.
    • Expanding outreach of its financial education program – Money Smart – to more than 300,000 consumers, resulting in the creation of about 40,000 banking relationships since the program's inception in 2001.
    • Publishing a final rule that modernizes and simplifies the Deposit Insurance Assessment certified statement process.
  • Feedback to the Letter to Stakeholders is encouraged, as are suggestions for improvement.
