Brian Kemp owes more than $800,000 in insider loans to bank he helped start
Ganduri says bank loans to insiders, like Kemp, are governed by Federal Reserve laws. He says some bankers like making these loans to wealthy board members and shareholders since they're good credit risks and wouldn't want to harm the bank. But others worry about insider loans for one main reason. “There are potential conflicts of interests. The insiders can treat these loans as a private piggy bank,” says Ganduri. Ganduri says the Federal reserve sets strict requirements that loans be on the same terms a bank would give any other borrower. In short: no special terms or advantages.
