Financial Holding Companies

Under the Bank Holding Company Act, a bank holding company may elect to be a financial holding company (FHC). The Federal Reserve's National Information Center (NIC) website can be used to search for bank holding companies that have elected to be treated as FHCs.

The NIC search web page can be accessed at https://www.ffiec.gov/nicpubweb/nicweb/SearchForm.aspx.

Detailed information on how to conduct an institution search using the above web page can be accessed at https://www.ffiec.gov/nicpubweb/Content/HELP/HelpAdvancedInstitutionSearch.htm.
