Regulation O Policy
The purpose of this Regulation O Policy Template is to address how a bank, credit union, or other type of financial institution adheres to Regulation O – “Loans to Executive Officers, Directors, and Principal Shareholders of Member Banks” to prohibit a financial institution from making a loan to a member of one of these individuals unless the loan falls within specified limits permitted by the regulation. Additionally, this policy provides guidance on how the Board of Directors and Senior Management may legally and prudently engage in transactions with insiders by implementing risk management processes that provide for the appropriate control and monitoring of insider activities.
