Affiliated business arrangements and control

Answered by: 

Question: 
My compliance officer says we have an affiliated business arrangement with a title insurance company that is 20% owned by our holding company. I thought the rules kicked in with 25% ownership. Who’s right?
Answer: 

It appears that you and your compliance officer are arguing over different concepts. Affiliated business arrangements are a RESPA concept triggered by a common ownership level as low as 1%. Control under the Bank Holding Company Act and Regulation Y is triggered by 25% ownership.
