IN RE: INA Trust, fsb
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Application for Federal Deposit Insurance (Savings Association Insurance Fund)


Pursuant to the provisions of Section 5 of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (12 U.S.C. 1815), an application for Federal deposit insurance with membership in the Savings Association Insurance Fund has been filed on behalf of INA Trust, fsb, ("INA Trust") a proposed new Federal savings bank to be located at 1601 Chestnut Street, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

INA Trust will be wholly-owned by INA Holdings Corporation ("INA Holdings"), a fifth-tier subsidiary of Ace Limited, and INA Trust's focus will be solely on offering corporate trust services to mid-sized companies and personal trust services to upper middle-income households. Initially, INA Trust plans to solicit business primarily in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and Hartford, Connecticut areas but eventually the institution intends to solicit business nationwide.

For the purposes of this proposal, the investment in fixed assets is reasonable, capital is adequate, future earnings prospects are favorable, and management is considered satisfactory. No formal objections to this application have been filed with the FDIC. Corporate powers to be exercised are consistent with the purpose of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act. No undue risk to the Savings Association Insurance Fund is apparent.

Accordingly, based on the favorable findings on all statutory factors and the careful evaluation of all available facts and information, the Associate Director, acting under delegated authority has concluded that approval of the application is warranted. In granting such approval, the Associate Director has taken into consideration the prudential conditions imposed in the October 15, 1999, approval by the Office of Thrift Supervision.
