Supervisory Insights is published by the FDIC's Division of Risk Management Supervision to promote sound principles and practices for bank supervision.
The Winter 2017 - PDF issue of Supervisory Insights features two articles of interest to examiners, bankers, and supervisors. "Credit Management Information Systems: A Forward-Looking Approach" - PDF 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" - PDF 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.
This issue also includes the Regulatory and Supervisory Roundup, an overview of recently released regulations and supervisory guidance.
