New York State Department of Financial Services

Weekly Bulletin
September 9, 2011

SECTION I

This section records the receipt of applications and notices to the Banking Department.   Applications and notices received by the Foreign and Wholesale Banks, Community and Regional Banks and Licensed Financial Services Divisions are listed in order of date of receipt; applications and notices received by the Mortgage Banking Division are listed at the end of  Section I by type of application or notice.  THE WEEKLY BULLETIN CONSTITUTES THE ONLY WRITTEN NOTIFICATION OF THESE SUBMISSIONS THAT WILL BE ISSUED BY THE BANKING DEPARTMENT.  Any comment on, or objection to, any item contained in this Weekly Bulletin should be presented to the Banking Department within 10 calendar days of the date of this bulletin, unless a different time period is specified in the item.  More specifically, such comments or objections, including any that concern CRA-related applications, should be either  (a) delivered by mail or in person to The Secretary of the New York State Banking Board, One State Street, New York, New York 10004-1417 before the stated deadline or (b) transmitted by e-mail to BBSecretary@banking.state.ny.us. This Weekly Bulletin may also be viewed online at the Banking Department’s Web site at:  http://www.banking.state.ny.us

SECTION II

This section records actions taken by the Superintendent of Banks and/or the Banking Board, and other information concerning the activities of the Banking Department.  Actions relating to institutions supervised by the Foreign and Wholesale Banks, Community and Regional Banks and Licensed Financial Services Divisions are listed in order of date of action; actions relating to institutions supervised by the Mortgage Banking Division are listed at the end of Section II by type of action taken.

NOTE

The Weekly Bulletin formerly gave notice, in Section III, of applications filed by federally-chartered institutions (banks and thrifts) for new branches to be located in New York received from the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency or The Office of Thrift Supervision (now part of the OCC).  Because the OCC no longer routinely sends copies of such applications to the Department, the Department has discontinued Section III.  Such information is available on the website of the OCC at http://www.occ.treas.gov/tools-forms/tools/licensing/weekly-bulletin-corp-apps-search.html(Searches may only be done on a state by state basis, and the results show applications of banks headquartered in that state.  Thus, to find information about New York branch proposals by federally-chartered institutions headquartered in other states, it is necessary to search the headquarters state.)
