Notice of Meeting of the Consumer Advisory Council, 63183-63184 [2010-25817]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 198 / Thursday, October 14, 2010 / Notices jlentini on DSKJ8SOYB1PROD with NOTICES (c)(1)(ii) and (2)(ii) of Regulation U (12 C.F.R. 221.3(b)(1), (2), and (3), and (c)(1)(ii) and (2)(ii)). The information collected in the FR G–1 and the FR G– 4 is given confidential treatment under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552 (b)(4) and (6)). Confidentiality determinations would have to be made on a case by case basis. The FR G–2 does not collect confidential information. The FR U–1 and FR G–3 data are not submitted to the Federal Reserve System and, as such, no issue of confidentiality arises. Abstract: The Securities Exchange Act of 1934 authorizes the Federal Reserve to regulate securities credit extended by brokers and dealers, banks, and other lenders. The purpose statements, FR U– 1 and FR G–3, are recordkeeping requirements for brokers and dealers, banks, and other lenders, respectively, to document the purpose of their loans secured by margin stock. Margin stock is defined as (1) stocks that are registered on a national securities exchange or any over-the-counter security designated for trading in the National Market System, (2) debt securities (bonds) that are convertible into margin stock, and (3) shares of most mutual funds. Lenders other than brokers and dealers and banks must register and deregister with the Federal Reserve using the FR G–1 and FR G–2, respectively, and they must file the FR G–4 annual report while registered. The Federal Reserve uses the data to identify lenders subject to Regulation U, to verify their compliance with the regulation, and to monitor margin credit. Current Actions: The Federal Reserve proposes minor clarifications to the FR G–1, FR G–3, and FR U–1 for consistency purposes. First, the definition of margin stock included in the instructions would be standardized. This would eliminate the confusion as to what securities could be defined as margin stock. Second, the lender’s attestation in Part III of the FR G–3 would be modified to more closely parallel the FR U–1 attestation. The notificants listed below have applied under the Change in Bank Control Act (12 U.S.C. 1817(j)) and § 225.41 of the Board’s Regulation Y (12 CFR 225.41) to acquire shares of a bank or bank holding company. The factors that are considered in acting on the notices are set forth in paragraph 7 of the Act (12 U.S.C. 1817(j)(7)). The notices are available for immediate inspection at the Federal Reserve Bank indicated. The notices also will be available for inspection at the offices of the Board of Governors. Interested persons may express their views in writing to the Reserve Bank indicated for that notice or to the offices of the Board of Governors. Comments must be received not later than October 28, 2010. A. Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta (Clifford Stanford, Vice President) 1000 Peachtree Street, NE., Atlanta, Georgia 30309: 1.
