In deciding whether a BHC is the best route to conduct its businesses, banks need to weigh the operational flexibility of BHCs against the added administrative and regulatory costs. Counsel must have a thorough understanding of the permitted activities of banks vs. BHCs. BHCs are frequently used to engage in a variety of activities that are nonbanking or financial but outside of traditional depository activities, usually through affiliates under the ownership umbrella of a BHC. Listen as our authoritative panel discusses the regulatory framework in which banks and BHCs operate and the non-banking activities that are permitted for each. The panel will also discuss the logistics of creating or dissolving a BHC and issues to consider in deciding whether to do so.
