Written policy on IRR 12-CU-05

Submitted by sevans on Fri, 11/21/2014 - 1:45pm

Beginning on September 30, 2012, certain federally insured credit unions (FICUs) will be required to adopt a written policy on interest-rate risk (IRR) management and a program to implement it effectively.1

This rule affects only 45% of credit unions, yet covers 96% of credit union assets. Boards and management of affected credit unions must be vigilant and well-prepared before interest rates rise. Exposed credit unions without appropriate interest rate risk policies pose unacceptable and preventable risks to the National Credit Union Share Insurance Fund.
