    FDIC Publishes Annual Report for 2019

    February 13, 2020

    FDIC published the annual report for 2019. The report highlights that FDIC continued to engage in several community banking and community development initiatives, with cybersecurity remaining as a high priority for FDIC in 2019. The agency worked to strengthen infrastructure resiliency, enhance data governance, help financial institutions mitigate risks, and respond to cyber threats. The FDIC Chair mentioned in the report that, in 2020, FDIC will continue to advance the goals of strengthening the banking system, fostering innovation, and ensuring that banks can meet the needs of businesses and consumers across the nation.

    The key topics covered in the report are related to fintech, supervision, risk management and internal control, activities related to large and complex financial institutions, resolution, cybersecurity, and management of credit, liquidity, and interest-rate risks. The report also summarizes the key regulations that were issued during 2019. Additionally, the report mentions that a pending notice of proposed rulemaking is planned for early 2020 to address the outstanding issues related to the prohibitions and restrictions on investments in private equity and hedge funds. 

    The FDIC Chair highlights that regulators must be proactive in engaging with all stakeholders, including banks, consumer groups, trade associations, and technology companies to understand and help foster the safe adoption of technology across the banking system, especially at community banks. The cost of innovation and regulatory uncertainty are the two primary hurdles that are keeping community banks from developing and utilizing new technologies. Partnerships with financial technology companies, or fintechs, can help community banks overcome the first hurdle but, to overcome the second hurdle, FDIC must ensure that its regulatory framework enables those partnerships. In 2019, FDIC established a new office—the FDIC Tech Lab, or FDiTech—to address these issues.
