Agencies Request Comment on Statement Concerning Complex Structured Finance Activities
Five federal agencies today requested public comment on a proposed statement describing internal controls and risk management procedures that the agencies believe will assist financial institutions that engage in complex structured finance activities to identify and address the risks associated with such transactions.
The proposed statement was issued by the Securities and Exchange Commission, Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency and the Office of Thrift Supervision. The statement would represent supervisory guidance for institutions supervised by the four banking agencies and a policy statement for institutions supervised by the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Comment on the interagency statement is requested within thirty days of publication in the Federal Register, expected shortly. The statement is attached.

Congress created the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation in 1933 to restore public confidence in the nation's banking system. The FDIC insures deposits at the nation's 9,182 banks and savings associations and it promotes the safety and soundness of these institutions by identifying, monitoring and addressing risks to which they are exposed. The FDIC receives no federal tax dollars - insured financial institutions fund its operations.
FDIC press releases and other information are available on the Internet at www.fdic.gov and may also be obtained through the FDIC's Public Information Center (877-275-3342 or (703) 562-2200).
