US banks face variety of risks, financial performance strong: regulator

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Many of the major risks U.S. banks face lay beyond their control, according to a review released by banking's top federal regulator on Friday that found the sector's financial performance remains strong.

The U.S. Office of the Comptroller of the Currency found that risks to banks lurk in competition from nonfinancial lenders and in the rapid evolution of money laundering and terrorism financing methods.

The OCC pointed to heavy reliance on third-party servicers and vendors as a place where banks could be vulnerable to a variety of threats, as they rely on outside firms to carry out critical activities or provide cyber security.

"Many banks have increasingly leveraged and become dependent on third-party service providers to support key operations within their banks. Over time, consolidation among service providers has resulted in large numbers of banks (becoming) reliant on a small number of service providers," according to the regulator.

Real Estate Financial service?

I have a concept for a financial real estate service and I would like some feedback on whether or not it could work.

Say someone has owned their home for several years and own a large amount of equity in their property "lets say $65,000".


It won't work. For the sake of clarity, lets assume the house was purchased for 165k and the owner has, as you say, 65k in equity. The third party investor is supposed to buy the house for 165k? Why would anybody do that, where is their profit?
