Recently much has been written about high profile non-bank financial institutions applying for and receiving permission to become bank holding companies (BHC). The most obvious and highly publicized objective for becoming a BHC is to gain access to Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP) money. Investment banks, credit card companies and other grantors of credit face the same credit-related issues as commercial banks and are seeking the same assistance. However, beyond TARP becoming a BHC gives access to other potential asset guarantee programs and liquidity assistance from the Fed Discount Window.
