Savings associations are a type of financial institution that historically focused on taking consumer savings deposits and making home loans. While declining in numbers, the thrift industry remains a significant segment of the US financial system. Thrift institutions and their owners are subject to a specific regulatory scheme that differs in important respects from the regulation of commercial banks and bank holding companies.

Handly, author of Savings Institutions Mergers, Acquisitions & Conversions (Law Journals Press) and lecturer at Boston University Law School's Graduate Program in Banking and Financial Law, will survey the special regulatory requirements and opportunities for thrift institutions.
