Federally Regulated Financial Institutions
Notice: Each of the five federal financial institution regulatory agencies is responsible for regulating a specific category of financial institutions, including safeguarding against inappropriate client pressure through such efforts as ensuring appraiser independence.
In short, the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency regulates all national banks; the Office of Thrift Supervision is in charge of regulating thrift institutions; the Federal Reserve regulates state chartered banks; the National Credit Union Administration regulates all federal credit unions and state-chartered credit unions that qualify for share insurance; and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation regulates over 12,000 member banks and savings associations.
To determine which specific regulator to report an instance of client pressure to, use the National Information Center Web site managed by the Federal Financial Institutions Examinations Council to search for the financial institution by name, state, city or type of lending institution. The site will list which regulator has jurisdictional oversight. Then you can write to one of the following directors below to outline your issue or concern.
