IN RE: World Financial Capital Bank
Salt Lake City, Utah
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 for World Financial Capital Bank (Bank), a proposed new Utah industrial loan company, to be located at 2855 East Cottonwood Parkway, Suite 100, Salt Lake City, Salt Lake County, Utah.

The Bank will provide commercial credit cards and issue certificates of deposits to customers throughout the country. The applicant will operate the proposed institution in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Corporate powers to be exercised are consistent with the purpose of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act. No formal objections to this proposal have been filed and no undue risk to the Bank Insurance Fund is apparent.

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