The foundation for every safety & soundness exam is the CAMELS rating system. Examiners look at numerous "assessment factors" for each component of your rating. We will look at what management and the board must consider to be in compliance and to maintain safe and sound financial performance. We will discuss examiner hot spots, as well. This session will help you understand the big picture and how the efforts of all departments piece together.

In addition, we will provide a CAMELS report checklist to show which reports would benefit the directors and executive management in understanding how your institution is stacking up in each CAMELS rating component.


  • We will discuss each of the six components of the CAMELS rating system and cover the assessment factors the examiners consider during a safety & soundness exam.
  • Throughout this session, you will be provided with examples of strong policy, procedure and practices.
  • Examiners’ “hot buttons” will be discussed.
  • Red flags that should get management’s and the board’s attention will be provided.
