665.0711 Loans.—As an annual average, based on monthly computations, at least 50 percent of assets other than liquid assets of an association shall be invested in either real estate loans or interests therein on home property or primarily residential property for terms not in excess of 40 years or for such additional terms as may be provided by rule. Recognizing that associations are chartered to serve the convenience and needs of the communities in which they are chartered to do business, that the convenience and needs of communities include the need for credit services as well as deposit services, and that associations have a continuing and affirmative obligation to help meet the credit needs of the local communities in which they are chartered, at least 40 percent of the assets required to be invested by this section shall be secured by property within this state, unless a lower percentage is established by the commission or office pursuant to s. 655.061, except that loans insured or guaranteed in whole or in part by the United States are not subject to this restriction.
