Fed Proposes Bank Holding Co. Rating System for S&Ls

The Federal Reserve Board invited comment on a proposal to apply its rating system for bank holding companies to savings and loan holding companies. While the board has applied its rating system to S&L holding companies on an “indicative” basis since 2011, it said fully applying the system will help ensure consistent standards and supervision.

The proposal would fully apply the rating system to most S&L holding companies supervised by the board. However, holding companies engaged in significant insurance or commercial activities would continue to receive indicative ratings.
