Letter to Stakeholders Second Quarter 2005 Edition of the FDIC’s Letter to Stakeholderse
FIL-63-2005 July 14, 2005
The FDIC has issued its quarterly Letter to Stakeholders, which reports on the FDIC’s priorities and activities for the second quarter of 2005. The Letter to Stakeholders is attached.
The FDIC had many accomplishments in the second quarter of 2005. Among them:
After two years of work under the EGRPRA mandate, Vice Chairman Reich, along with other members of the interagency regulatory review project team, made their first round of recommendations to Congress.
Director Curry testified before Congress regarding the FDIC’s views on the implementation of Basel II in the United States.
The FDIC published a study of U.S. metro-area housing boom and bust cycles since 1978, and identified an unprecedented 55 “boom” markets as of year-end 2004. The study has been widely cited as part of the public debate over the relative merits of so-called “innovative mortgage products,” the use of which increased substantially during 2004.
Your feedback to the Letter to Stakeholders is encouraged, as are suggestions for improvement.
