On April 18, the Federal Reserve Board issued SR 14-4 which updates the Federal Reserve’s loan sampling expectations for state member bank and credit extending nonbank subsidiaries of banking organizations with $10-$50 billion in total consolidated assets. Depending on the structure and size of subsidiary state member banks, the guidance permits examiners to apply the guidance applicable to smaller state member banks when a bank’s subsidiary’s total assets are below $10 billion. The guidance (i) details the loan sampling methodology to be employed by Reserve Banks during the supervisory process; (ii) calls for documentation of loan sample selection methods in scoping memoranda and in the confidential section of the report of examination; and (iii) outlines expectations for following up on examinations with adverse findings. The guidance supersedes the examiner loan sampling expectations described in SR 94-13, “Loan Review Requirements for On-site Examinations.”
