Q: § __.26(b) – 4: Under the small institution lending test performance standards, will examiners consider both loan originations and purchases?
A: Yes, consistent with the other assessment methods in the regulation, examiners will consider both loans originated and purchased by the institution. Likewise, examiners may consider any other loan data the small institution chooses to provide, including data on loans outstanding, commitments, and letters of credit.
