 FDIC: FDIC Definition of Minority Depository Institution
ection 308 of the Financial Institutions Reform, Recovery, and Enforcement Act of 1989 ("FIRREA") requires the Secretary of the Treasury to consult with the Director of the Office of Thrift Supervision and the Chairperson of the FDIC Board of Directors to determine the best methods for preserving and encouraging minority ownership of depository institutions.
In addition to institutions that meet the ownership test, institutions will be considered minority depository institutions if a majority of the Board of Directors is minority and the community that the institution serves is predominantly minority.
Institutions that are not already identified as minority depository institutions can request to be designated as such by certifying that they meet the above definition.

Depository institutions may also hold additional balances called required or contractual clearing balances, which can earn an implicit rate of interest in the form of an interest credit that is used to defray fees for Federal Reserve services.
Allowing depository institutions to pay interest on business demand deposit accounts would, in itself, have the effect of increasing demand deposit accounts at depository institutions, although CBO estimates that this effect would not be significant without the additional provision of allowing interest on required reserves.
Depository institutions that do not currently offer commercial sweep accounts would offer interest-bearing business demand deposit accounts, and businesses that currently have sweep accounts would have an incentive to hold higher levels of demand deposits with the allowance of interest on business demand deposits.

 The Discount Window - Fedpoints - Federal Reserve Bank of New York   (Site not responding. Last check: )
All depository institutions that maintain transaction accounts or nonpersonal time deposits subject to reserve requirements are entitled to borrow at the discount window.
Prior to the passage of the Depository Institutions Deregulation and Monetary Control Act of 1980, discount window borrowing generally had been restricted to commercial banks that were members of the Federal Reserve System.
Institutions that borrowed at the discount window sometimes expressed concern that borrowing at the window signaled weakness both to competitors and the Fed. Such concerns deterred some depository institutions from borrowing at the discount window during very tight money markets when doing so would have been appropriate.

Assumptions include: all liabilities are checkable deposits, depository institutions do not keep excess reserves; people desire to hold only additional checkable deposits and do not want to hold additional currency, and all assets are either reserves or loans.
The depository institution first uses reserve requirement to calculate how much of the reserves it is required to keep and how much are excess reserves.
If depository institutions expect larger deposit outflows, they will be more likely to keep excess reserves for liquidity purposes.

 Attorney General: Hon. Joseph M. Suggs, Jr., State Treasurer, 1993-021 Formal Opinion, Attorney General of Connecticut
The amount of collateral a depository institution must maintain under the statute varies depending on the risk-based capital ratio of the depository, which is a measure of the institution's financial stability, or the length of time it has been conducting business in the state.
Nothing in the language of the section indicates that a depository institution's agreements with public depositors are exempt from its application, or are to be treated in any manner differently than agreements with any other depositor.
An appropriate officer of the institution should certify to the State that the agreement was approved by the board of directors, and provide a copy of the minutes of the meeting where such approval was granted, and also certify that the agreement is maintained as an official record of the institution.

 The Depository Institutions Deregulation Act
The Depository Institutions Deregulation Act also calls for the gradual elimination of Regulation Q, a measure which permits the Federal Reserve to set a ceiling on the interest rate paid on savings deposits.
Although the minimum balance requirement of $300-500 that many New England institutions require may be too high for some depositors, NOW accounts are a supplement, not a substitute, for the current checking accounts.
Proponents of Regulation Q defend interest rate ceilings on the grounds that they are necessary to preserve the viability of thrift institutions and to protect the housing and mortgage markets from the burden of high interest rates.

 Institutional - Electronic Confirms For Banks/Depository Institutions
Section 403.5(d)(1)(ii) of the GSA regulations states that a financial institution that retains custody of government securities that are the subject of a hold-in-custody repo transaction between the financial institution and the counterparty shall confirm in writing the specific securities that are the subject of the transaction.
Accordingly, financial institutions wishing to use electronic media for delivering hold-in-custody repo confirmations to customers must also: (1) obtain the customer's agreement prior to delivering confirmations electronically; and (2) be prepared to provide paper copies of confirmations should the customer request them -- even if the customer initially consented to the receipt of electronic confirmations.
Section 450.4(b)(1) requires a depository institution that is a custodian of government securities to issue a confirmation or a safekeeping receipt for each security held for a customer except securities that are the subject of hold-in-custody repos (which are already subject to the hold-in-custody repo confirmation requirements of § 403.5(d)).

 Effect on Depository Institutions | Discount window
The new discount window lending programs represent an additional backup funding option for eligible institutions seeking to supplement their funding sources.
For many depository institutions, particularly those with more limited access to wholesale funding markets, the new lending programs will also eliminate the need to bid for funds in the marketplace when available funds are tight.
Nonetheless, the minimal administration of the new program makes it a convenient and ready source of backup funding for qualifying institutions faced with situations such as an unexpected increase in loan demand, loss of deposits, or reserve account shortfall.

 Regulation D - Reserve Requirements of Depository Institutions
To assure the effectiveness of the limitations on persons who sell Federal funds to depository institutions, Regulation D applies to nondocumentary obligations undertaken by a depository institution to obtain funds for use in its banking business, as well as to documentary obligations.
In view of this requirement, a depository institution that purchases Federal funds should ascertain the character (not necessarily the identity) of the actual seller in order to justify classification of its liability on the transaction as Federal funds purchased rather than as a deposit.
Any exempt institution that has given general assurance to the purchasing depository institution that sales by it of Federal funds ordinarily will be for its own account and thereafter executes such transactions for the account of others, should disclose the nature of the actual lender with respect to each such transaction.
