The California Department of Business Oversight (DBO) licenses and regulates California chartered banks. California
law requires FDIC insurance for all state bank charters. In considering applications
for deposit insurance for a proposed depository institution, the FDIC must evaluate each application in relation to the
factors prescribed in section 6 of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (hereafter the Act) (12 U.S.C. 1816). Those factors
are: The financial history and condition of the depository institution; The adequacy of its capital structure; Its future
earnings prospects; The general character and fitness of its management; The risk presented by such depository institution
to the deposit insurance fund; The convenience and needs of the community to be served by the depository institution; and
Whether its corporate powers are consistent with the purposes of the Act. In general, the applicant will receive
deposit insurance if all of these statutory factors plus the considerations required by the National Historic Preservation
Act and the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 are resolved favorably.
