Winter 2017 Issue Now Available

Supervisory Insights – Winter 2017 issue is available at www.fdic.gov/supervisoryinsights.
Statement of Applicability to Institutions with Total Assets under $1 Billion: The information contained in this issue of Supervisory Insights may be of general interest to FDIC-supervised financial institutions, but it is not supervisory guidance.
- "Credit Management Information Systems: A Forward-Looking Approach" illustrates how banks can strengthen credit MIS by incorporating forward-looking risk indicators and establishing a sound governance framework.
- "Underwriting Trends and Other Highlights" from the FDIC's Credit and Consumer Products/Services Survey shares recent credit survey results with a focus on lending activity -- including trends in underwriting, loan growth, and funding. The results suggest that credit risk and liquidity risk are increasing, as reflected in a higher frequency of surveys that report risks associated with loan growth, out-of-territory lending, and credit and funding concentrations.
- The "Regulatory and Supervisory Roundup" section provides an overview of recently released regulations and supervisory guidance.
