As failures of banks and thrift institutions continue at the fastest pace in decades and as banks and thrifts continue to see their assets - particularly commercial real estate assets - deteriorate in value, attracting sources of capital remains a high priority in Washington.  Over the past several months, private capital investors have shown an interest in providing capital to the banking industry by investing in both troubled institutions as well as participating in the FDIC resolutions process.  In addition, private capital remains interested in investing healthy institutions as well.  Efforts by private capital investors to invest in banks and thrifts have been met with often inconsistent, confusing and sometimes hostile reaction by federal regulatory agencies.  In this roundtable, our attorneys will assess the current regulatory environment faced by private capital investors seeking to invest in banks or thrifts.  Among the areas we will cover are:

  • An overview and analysis of the FDIC's recently-adopted policy statement on the acquisition of failed depository institutions by private capital investors
  • A discussion of recent private capital investments in banks or thrifts
  • Structural options and forms of FDIC assistance
  • Recent developments at the Federal Reserve Board and Office of Thrift Supervision
  • Open issues and areas of uncertainty
