Associate Examiner / Examiner / Senior Examiner
– Regulatory Applications & Enforcement –
The regulatory Applications & Enforcement function is an integral part of the Federal Reserve System's supervision of state-chartered member banks, bank holding companies, savings & loan holding companies, and certain nonbank subsidiaries. Laws frequently addressed by the Federal Reserve System through the regulatory applications function include the Bank Holding Company Act, Change in Bank Control Act, Federal Reserve Act, Federal Deposit Insurance Act, Home Owners Loan Act, and Dodd-Frank Act. The position will operate from within the Supervision and Regulation Department of the Cleveland Federal Reserve Bank. The individual in this position will be responsible for processing regulatory applications that may range from routine to highly complex, and also support the supervision function as business needs and opportunities dictate. The individual may also be involved with monitoring suspicious activity reports on bank insiders and preparing supervisory actions for troubled institutions.
•Review and analyze applications involving state member banks, bank holding companies, and savings & loan holding companies of increasing complexity. The more challenging applications would likely be generated from the most complex domestic and international banking organizations (i.e., Top 50 Financial Institutions) and likely involve formal protests and/or highly complex situations.
•Identify significant and/or potentially complicated issues resulting from the application analysis and effectively communicate those issues and proposed resolutions, as appropriate, to financial institution management, Federal Reserve Bank senior management, Federal Reserve Board of Governors, and others.
•Review suspicious activity reports (“SARs”) involving institution-affiliated parties filed by Fourth District institutions and implement the Federal Reserve’s SAR monitoring program and procedures. Consult with Law Enforcement and/or the enforcement function at the Board of Governors in determining the appropriate course of action.
•Prepare informal enforcement actions recommended by examination staff for troubled institutions to address supervisory concerns, and work with the enforcement function at the Board of Governors to facilitate preparation of formal enforcement actions.
•Maintain a strong working relationship with Federal Reserve System staff members and other financial institution regulators (e.g., Office of the Comptroller of the Currency, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, various state banking agencies, etc.) as a means to ensure effective and timely analysis of all applications.
•Participate in system workgroups on matters pertinent to regulatory applications & enforcement matters.
•Stay informed of current industry and regulatory developments by reviewing periodicals and participating in seminars and other training as available.
•Conduct regulatory research as necessary.
•Perform other duties as assigned or requested.
