663.083 Lending limits.—
(1) The commission shall by rule prescribe the limits of drafts or bills of exchange which an international bank agency or branch may accept relative to the capital accounts of the international banking corporation. These limits shall take into account all transactions which are included and excluded in computing the lending limit for acceptances of a federal agency in the case of an international bank agency, or a federal branch in the case of an international branch, licensed under federal banking law.
(2) The provisions of ss. 658.48 and 658.67, except to the extent they are inconsistent with s. 663.06 or this section, shall apply to the loans and investments made by any international bank agencies or international branches of the international banking corporation; as used in those sections with respect to an international banking corporation and its international bank agencies or international branches, the term “capital accounts” shall refer to the capital accounts of the international banking corporation, and, except when used with reference to “capital accounts,” the term “bank” shall refer to the international bank agencies and international branches of the international banking corporation which are licensed in this state.
(3) Any limitation in this section based on the capital accounts of an international banking corporation shall refer, with respect to an international bank agency or international branch in this state, to the dollar equivalent of the capital accounts of the international banking corporation, as determined by the office. If the international banking corporation has more than one international bank agency or international branch in this state, the business transacted by all such agencies or branches shall be aggregated in determining compliance with a limitation or restriction in this section.
