IN RE: Insurors Bank of Tennessee
Nashville, Davidson County, Tennessee (Proposed)
Application for Federal Deposit Insurance (Bank 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 has been filed on behalf of Insurors Bank of Tennessee, Nashville, Tennessee ("Insurors" or "Bank"), a proposed new state chartered bank and a Federal Reserve System member with membership in the Bank Insurance Fund ("BIF".) The Bank is to open with a single office to be located at 2500 Hillsboro Road, Suite 200, Nashville, Davidson County, Tennessee.

Insurors is being organized as state member bank. Cumberland Bancorp, Inc. , and InsCorp, Inc. both domiciled in Nashville, Tennessee, are to each own fifty percent of Insurors. The Bank is to be a special purpose or "niche" bank in that it will be a commercial bank servicing the needs of independent insurance agents in the State of Tennessee, their employees, and customers. The Bank will have a geographically central location in Tennessee with headquarters in the city of Nashville, the site of the state's capitol. The Bank's primary trade area is initially defined as Davidson County, the state's second most populated county as of the 1996 census. However, as a special purpose institution, Insurors will market itself to, and solicit business from, a specific group of customers, namely, independent insurance agents, their employees and customers in the State of Tennessee.

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 to be satisfactory. The Bank will provide an alternative banking source to its targeted market with no adverse effect on the competitive environment. No undue risk to the to the insurance fund is apparent. No formal objections to this application have been filed with the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation. Corporate powers to be exercised are consistent with the purpose of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act.

Accordingly, based upon a careful evaluation of all available facts and information, the Associate Director, pursuant to delegated authority, has concluded that approval of the application is warranted.
