Tougher Big Bank Enforcement Coming, OCC’s Brosnan Warns

November 16, 2012

U.S. banks should prepare for a high level of enforcement actions, according to Michael Brosnan, who heads large-bank supervision at the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency.

“You’re going to start seeing more enforcement actions, probably more aggressive enforcement actions than we’ve ever seen before in our working life,” Brosnan said today at a conference in New York, adding that the attention will not only come from OCC, but also other regulators and law-enforcement entities. “It’s going to be a less forgiving atmosphere, and I can’t say it any more toned-down than that.”
