SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Technical Amendment Regarding the Loan Mix Index The FDIC assesses all IDIs 1 an amount for deposit insurance equal to the institution’s deposit insurance assessment base multiplied by its riskbased assessment rate.2 On May 20, 2016, the FDIC published a final rule (2016 final rule) that refined the deposit insurance assessment system for established small IDIs.3 Under the 2016 final rule, one of the measures used to calculate the assessment rate of an established small IDI is the loan mix index, a measure of the extent to which an IDI’s total assets include higher-risk categories of loans.

The technical amendment will not affect assessments previously paid by IDIs, or assessments paid by IDIs in the future, because the value for loans secured by nonfarm nonresidential properties that the FDIC uses to calculate the loan mix index is the value adopted by the FDIC Board in the 2016 final rule. II. Technical Amendment Regarding Description of Scorecard Measures for Highly Complex Institutions In 2014, the FDIC published a final rule (2014 final rule) that, among other things, requires highly complex institutions—generally, those with at least $50 billion in total assets (or owned by a parent holding company with at least $500 billion in assets) or those defined as processing banks or trust companies—to measure counterparty exposure for deposit insurance assessment purposes using the Basel III standardized approach.4 Counterparty exposure is captured in two measures—the ratio of top 20 counterparty exposures to Tier 1 capital and reserves and the ratio of the largest counterparty exposure to Tier 1 capital and reserves (collectively, the counterparty exposure measures)— which are used to determine a highly complex institution’s assessment rate. The 2014 final rule, among other things, revised footnote 2 in section VI., Description of Scorecard Measures, in appendix A to subpart A of the assessment regulations to define two terms—‘‘secured financing transactions’’ (SFTs) and ‘‘default fund contribution’’—used in the descriptions of the counterparty exposure measures. Due to an inadvertent publishing error, the revisions to the second footnote that were adopted by the FDIC Board on November 18, 2014, and published in the Federal Register on November 26, 2014, do not appear in the current version of the Code of Federal Regulations. This technical amendment replaces the footnote that appears in the Code of Federal Regulations with the version adopted by the FDIC Board in the 2014 final rule. The technical amendment will not affect assessments previously paid by IDIs, or assessments paid by IDIs in the future, because the definitions the FDIC uses to calculate the counterparty exposure measures are the definitions adopted by the FDIC Board in the 2014 final rule.

FEDERAL DEPOSIT INSURANCE CORPORATION

12 CFR Part 327

RIN 3064-AF64


Assessments; Corrections

AGENCY: Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.

ACTION: Correcting amendments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is making 
technical amendments to its rules governing deposit insurance 
assessments in two places to conform regulatory text to the text that 
was adopted by the FDIC Board of Directors (FDIC Board). Due to 
publishing errors, incorrect text was printed in the Federal Register 
and the Code of Federal Regulations. The first amendment will conform 
the value of the weighted charge-off rate for loans secured by nonfarm 
nonresidential properties that appears in the FDIC's assessment 
regulations to the charge-off rate adopted by the FDIC Board. The 
second amendment will conform a footnote that defines two terms in the 
descriptions of the counterparty measures for purposes of deposit 
insurance assessments to the language adopted by the FDIC Board. The 
technical amendments will not affect assessments previously paid by 
insured depository institutions (IDIs) or assessments paid by IDIs in 
the future.

DATES: Effective November 9, 2020.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Daniel Hoople, Senior Financial 
Economist, Banking and Regulatory Policy Section, Division of Insurance 
and Research, (202) 898-3835, [email protected]; Nefretete Smith, 
Counsel, Legal Division, (202) 898-6851, [email protected].

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Technical Amendment Regarding the Loan Mix Index

    The FDIC assesses all IDIs \1\ an amount for deposit insurance 
equal to the institution's deposit insurance assessment base multiplied 
by its risk-based assessment rate.\2\ On May 20, 2016, the FDIC 
published a final rule (2016 final rule) that refined the deposit 
insurance assessment system for established small IDIs.\3\ Under the 
2016 final rule, one of the measures used to calculate the assessment 
rate of an established small IDI is the loan mix index, a measure of 
the extent to which an IDI's total assets include higher-risk 
categories of loans.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ As used in this notice, the term ``insured depository 
institution'' has the same meaning as the definition used in Section 
3 of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (FDI Act), 12 U.S.C. 
1813(c)(2).
    \2\ See generally 12 CFR 327.3(b)(1).
    \3\ 81 FR 32179 (May 20, 2016).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    This technical amendment corrects the historical weighted charge-
off rate for loans secured by nonfarm nonresidential properties, one of 
the categories of loans used in the loan mix index, that is currently 
published in the Code of Federal Regulations. Due to an inadvertent 
publishing error, the rate

[[Page 71228]]

that appeared in the Federal Register notice for the final rule on May 
20, 2016 (81 FR 32179), 0.7289274, differs from the historical weighted 
average industrywide charge-off rate that the FDIC Board adopted on 
April 26, 2016, and that the FDIC uses to calculate an IDI's loan mix 
index, 0.7286274, by three ten-thousandths of a percentage point. The 
technical amendment will not affect assessments previously paid by 
IDIs, or assessments paid by IDIs in the future, because the value for 
loans secured by nonfarm nonresidential properties that the FDIC uses 
to calculate the loan mix index is the value adopted by the FDIC Board 
in the 2016 final rule.

II. Technical Amendment Regarding Description of Scorecard Measures for 
Highly Complex Institutions

    In 2014, the FDIC published a final rule (2014 final rule) that, 
among other things, requires highly complex institutions--generally, 
those with at least $50 billion in total assets (or owned by a parent 
holding company with at least $500 billion in assets) or those defined 
as processing banks or trust companies--to measure counterparty 
exposure for deposit insurance assessment purposes using the Basel III 
standardized approach.\4\ Counterparty exposure is captured in two 
measures--the ratio of top 20 counterparty exposures to Tier 1 capital 
and reserves and the ratio of the largest counterparty exposure to Tier 
1 capital and reserves (collectively, the counterparty exposure 
measures)--which are used to determine a highly complex institution's 
assessment rate.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ 79 FR 70427 (Nov. 26, 2014).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The 2014 final rule, among other things, revised footnote 2 in 
section VI., Description of Scorecard Measures, in appendix A to 
subpart A of the assessment regulations to define two terms--``secured 
financing transactions'' (SFTs) and ``default fund contribution''--used 
in the descriptions of the counterparty exposure measures. Due to an 
inadvertent publishing error, the revisions to the second footnote that 
were adopted by the FDIC Board on November 18, 2014, and published in 
the Federal Register on November 26, 2014, do not appear in the current 
version of the Code of Federal Regulations.
    This technical amendment replaces the footnote that appears in the 
Code of Federal Regulations with the version adopted by the FDIC Board 
in the 2014 final rule. The technical amendment will not affect 
assessments previously paid by IDIs, or assessments paid by IDIs in the 
future, because the definitions the FDIC uses to calculate the 
counterparty exposure measures are the definitions adopted by the FDIC 
Board in the 2014 final rule.
