The Council is a formal interagency body empowered to prescribe uniform principles, standards, and report forms for the federal examination of financial institutions by the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (FRB), the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), and to make recommendations to promote uniformity in the supervision of financial institutions. In 2006, the State Liaison Committee (SLC) was added to the Council as a voting member. The SLC includes representatives from the Conference of State Bank Supervisors (CSBS), the American Council of State Savings Supervisors (ACSSS), and the National Association of State Credit Union Supervisors (NASCUS).
Large financial institutions include U.S. firms with assets of $100 billion or more and foreign banking organizations with combined U.S. assets of $100 billion or more. Supervision of large financial institutions is designed to: (i) enhance the resiliency of these firms, in order to lower probability of failure or inability to serve as a financial intermediary, and (ii) to reduce the impact on the financial system and the broader economy in the event of a firm's failure or material weakness. The Federal Reserve's supervision framework for large financial institutions is described in SR letter 12-17/CA Letter 12-14, "Consolidated Supervision Framework for Large Financial Institutions".
The Federal Reserve follows a risk-focused approach by scaling its supervisory work to the size and complexity of an institution. In supervising financial institutions, a risk-focused approach to supervision is more efficient and results in more rigorous oversight of firms that pose increased risk to the financial system. The Federal Reserve organizes its supervision of large financial institutions into two supervisory programs, described below.
Firms identified as posing elevated risk to U.S. financial stability are supervised by the Large Institution Supervision Coordinating Committee, or LISCC, supervisory program. Financial institutions subject to the LISCC supervisory program include: (i) any firm subject to Category I standards under the Board's tailoring framework, (ii) any non-commercial, non-insurance savings and loan holding company that would be identified for Category I standards if it were a bank holding company, and (iii) any nonbank financial institutions designated as systemically important by the Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC).
The LISCC supervisory program is a national program that uses both cross-firm (horizontal) and firm-specific supervisory activities to assess the financial resiliency and risk-management practices of firms. For more information on the LISCC supervisory program, see this link.
The Large and Foreign Banking Organization, or LFBO, program supervises all other large financial institutions that are not included in the LISCC program. The LFBO program includes some cross-firm supervisory activities, but firm-specific teams at the local Reserve Bank conduct most of the supervisory work, subject to oversight by the Board. For more information on the LFBO supervisory program for domestic financial institutions, see this link. For more information on the LFBO supervisory program for foreign financial institutions, see this link.
Many large financial institutions are required to submit resolution plans, or "living wills," that describe a company's strategy for rapid and orderly resolution in the event of material financial distress.
The Shared National Credit Program assesses credit risk and trends as well as the risk management practices associated with the largest and most complex credits shared by multiple regulated financial institutions.
The Federal Reserve Board collects assessment fees equal to the expenses it estimates are necessary or appropriate for it to supervise and regulate bank holding companies and savings and loan holding companies with $100 billion or more in total consolidated assets and nonbank financial companies designated by the Financial Stability Oversight Council (FSOC) for supervision by the Federal Reserve.
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, the United States Department of the Treasury, and the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) are issuing this joint memorandum to encourage coordination among financial institutions, law enforcement, and adult protective service agencies (APS) in order to protect older adults from elder financial exploitation.

The mission of the Illinois Department of Financial and Professional Regulation, Division of Financial Institutions (DFI), is to protect and educate the public and promote confidence in the regulated industries through administration of statutory responsibilities in an efficient, professional, responsive, and innovative manner. DFI licenses, charters, and examines a wide variety of financial products and services including:
As financial institutions make commitments to align their businesses and portfolios to net zero, many have begun to develop plans that demonstrate how they will achieve their climate goals. To support global ambitions to reach net zero by 2050, these net-zero transition plans must be science-based and include credible interim targets and implementation tactics. The following GFANZ working groups seek to build on the extensive progress that has already been made across the financial industry to articulate clear and consistent guidance in developing credible net-zero transition plans and address cross-cutting issues in transition plan design and implementation.
Develop a practical guide for financial institutions and the real-economy companies that they invest in, lend to, insure, and support with financial advice and products. Drawing on existing transition plans and climate guidance, this guide will be designed to serve as a reference for firms building and disclosing transition plans.

The finance sector is key to unlocking the system-wide change needed to reach net-zero emissions. With the SBTi Finance Framework, financial institutions can set near-term science-based targets that align their investment and lending activities with the Paris Climate Agreement.
Financial institutions are increasingly recognizing the extent of climate risks and their impact on every market sector. Investment and lending activities must be urgently reviewed to avoid the worst effects of catastrophic climate change and fund a climate-secure, zero-carbon future.
Financial institutions with US$130 trillion in assets under management are now committed to reaching a state of net-zero before 2050. A science-based approach is therefore needed to financial institutions' net-zero target setting.
In response, the SBTi has developed a foundational framework representing the first step in defining net-zero for financial institutions. A public consultation on the draft began on 10 November 2021. Stakeholder feedback informed the final publication of the net-zero for financial institutions foundations paper in April 2022.
The foundations paper is being followed by an open stakeholder process to develop actionable criteria, detailed guidance and technical resources to support financial institutions in the formulation and implementation of their science-based net-zero targets.
This tool helps financial institutions to assess the temperature alignment of current emission reduction targets, commitments, and investment and lending portfolios. This information can be used by financial institutions to develop greenhouse gas emission reduction targets for official validation by the SBTi, develop engagement strategies and help with strategic security selection and allocation decisions.
More than 200 financial institutions have validated science-based targets or public commitments to set emissions reduction targets through the SBTi. In 2018, the SBTi launched a project to help financial institutions align their lending and investment portfolios with the ambition of the Paris Agreement. In October 2021, the first financial institutions had their science-based targets validated. 041b061a72
