Financial Institutions Answer Book 2015 provides, in a handy Q&A format, a comprehensive overview of the complex federal requirements regulating financial institutions in the United States.

Every aspect of a financial institution life cycle is covered, from understanding the differences in regulation based on what type of charter is chosen, through ongoing capital and deposit activities requirements and major changes in corporate control, to the cessation of entity activity through merger, acquisition or entity failure.

Financial Institutions Answer Book 2015 describes the requirements under each type of charter for the major areas of financial institution activity, such as:

• The creation of branch offices and deposit activity
• Corporate governance
• Executive compensation
• Deposit insurance requirements
• Insider and affiliate transactions
• Anti-money laundering and U.S. trade sanctions
• Examination and audit
• Privacy and data security

Reflecting the increased federal concern with fraud, money laundering and protecting the federal taxpayer from bank defaults, individual chapters are devoted to describing in detail the federal enforcement agencies and their powers, anti-money laundering and other fraud issues, the required examinations and audit process, and recent regulatory approaches to problem banks and failure.

Published in a handy softcover volume, Financial Institutions Answer Book 2015 is a source for quick, concise answers and will be of interest to lawyers and other legal professionals, as well as financial institution managers, officers, directors and other employees who would like a comprehensive understanding of the legal framework regulating banks and other financial institutions.
