July 24 - The FDIC has announced a series of outreach workshops to provide information on how to become an FDIC investor or asset purchaser. The FDIC is responsible for efficiently disposing of assets from failed banks in the most cost-effective manner possible. The FDIC has assets from failed banks available for acquisition by depository institutions, investors and asset purchasers. Some of these assets have been designated for inclusion in structured sales.
To ensure a diversity of participation in the structured sales program, the FDIC welcomes and strongly encourages minority- and women-owned investors and asset managers to participate or partner in bidding on the equity interests sold to investors under the program.
"Our outreach workshops have been met with tremendous enthusiasm by investors. The workshops are an example of our commitment to ensure that the structured sales transaction process is inclusive of all firms large and small. We believe that expanding the investor pool will assist in minimizing losses to the Deposit Insurance Fund," said Pamela Farwig, deputy director, Division of Resolutions and Receiverships.
The FDIC welcomes all potential investors, especially small and minority- and women-owned investors to register for the workshops. The half-day workshops will cover how structured transactions are created and operated, the pre-qualification process, details about the Small Investor Program and Investor Match Program, how to participate in cash loan sales and ORE sales, and a discussion about the transactional documents necessary to bid. The workshop dates are as follows:
