A Little More on What is Regulation Y
Regulation Y governs transactions by bank holding companies. Transactions requiring Federal Reserve approval include: Engaging in any non-banking activity, Mergers with or acquisitions of other bank holding companies or state member banks; are the appointment of executives of troubled bank holding companies or state member banks. The amount of disclosure and compliance required of a regulated entity will depend upon the banks efficiency rating or how well it is run. The Federal Reserve rates the bank based upon management performance and composite ratings. Primarily, well-run banks are subject to less scrutiny when undertaking a regulated transaction. Though any proposed action is still subject to an administrative, 30-day, public-comment process. Troubled banks, on the other hand, are subject to extensive scrutiny.
