SR 11-11 / CA 11-5 Supervision of Savings and Loan Holding Companies (SLHCs)

August 3, 2011

Title III of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act1 (Dodd-Frank Act) transfers to the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Board) the supervisory functions of the Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS) related to SLHCs and their nondepository subsidiaries beginning on July 21, 2011. The Dodd-Frank Act also provides that all regulations, guidelines, and other advisory materials issued by the OTS on or before the transfer date with respect to SLHCs and their nondepository subsidiaries will be enforceable until modified, terminated, set aside, or superseded. As a result of this change in law, approximately 430 SLHCs transferred to Board supervision on July 21, 2011.
