FDIC issues consent orders to four state banks

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. this week issued an updated list of enforcement actions taken against financial institutions in November. Four Washington banks were among those noted as receiving a Consent Order from the agency.

The four Washington institutions were Viking Bank, of Seattle; The Bank of Washington, of Lynwood; American Marine Bank, of Bainbridge Island; and Regal Financial Bank, of Seattle.

The banksĀ  were variously ordered, among other things, to maintain professional leadership; ensure safe levels of capital; better manage problem loans; and develop plans aimed at success.

A consent order is not necessarily an indication that a bank is failing, but rather is an indication that regulators are aiming greater scrutiny at internal operations.
