Supervisory Insights is published by the FDIC's Division of Risk Management Supervision to promote sound principles and practices for bank supervision.

The Fall 2019 issue of Supervisory Insights features two articles of interest to examiners, bankers, and supervisors.

“Commercial Real Estate Loan Concentration Risk Management” examines commercial real estate (CRE) loan exposure in the banking industry and discusses results of recent risk management supervisory activities for FDIC-supervised insured depository institutions with CRE lending concentrations.

“Leveraged Lending: Evolution, Growth and Heightened Risk” provides an overview of the leveraged lending market, discusses the risks associated with leveraged lending, and includes observations regarding current underwriting practices from examinations at state nonmember insured depository institutions and information from the Shared National Credit Program.

This issue also includes the Regulatory and Supervisory Roundup, an overview of recently released regulations and other items of interest.
