Remarks by Martin J. Gruenberg, Chairman, Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation to the Urban Financial Services Coalition; Washington, D.C.

June 24, 2016

US Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) Chairperson Gruenberg spoke at the Urban Financial Services Coalition June 2016 Annual National Summit and networked with the attendees. The FDIC insures over 4.8 Trillion Dollars in deposits and has over 5,000 employees.

Good afternoon. I am pleased to be here today. The focus of the Urban Financial Services Coalition (UFSC) on economic empowerment for diverse communities is an important goal that we at the FDIC share. I applaud UFSC for being a strong contributor to the development of effective leaders at financial institutions so that they can successfully serve their diverse communities.

The FDIC’s mission is to promote public confidence and stability in the banking system. While deposit insurance is a key factor in sustaining public confidence, consumer trust in the financial system is another important element. When consumers have a positive banking relationship, that relationship builds trust.

Many consumers—minorities in particular—remain unserved by the banking system. To promote banking relationships, it is vitally important that consumers have access to safe, secure, and affordable banking services. Having a banking relationship can give consumers the tools to pursue economic opportunity, such as by building assets, getting a good education, buying a home, or starting a business. Moreover, financial institutions that can effectively strengthen a broad range of customer relationships will be better positioned to adapt to the rapid changes in their markets and build their businesses.
