Washington Federal Inc was formed in November 1994 as a Washington Corporation. It is a bank holding company that conducts its operations through a federally-insured national bank subsidiary, Washington Federal, National Association. The business of the Bank consists of attracting deposits from the general public and investing these funds in loans of various types, including first lien mortgages on single-family dwellings, construction loans, land acquisition and development loans, loans on multi-family and other income producing properties, home equity loans and business loans. It also invests in certain United States government and agency obligations and other investments permitted by applicable laws and regulations. It has 182 branches located in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Arizona, Utah, Nevada, New Mexico and Texas. Through its subsidiaries, the Company is also engaged in real estate investment and insurance brokerage activities. The sources of funds for the Company's activities are retained earnings, loan repayments (including prepayments), net deposit inflows, repayments and sales of investments and borrowings. The Company obtains advances from the FHLB upon the security of the FHLB capital stock it owns and certain of its loans, provided certain standards related to credit worthiness have been met.

These competitors include other national banks, savings associations, community banks, credit unions and other financial intermediaries. The Company is subject to a variety of operational risks, including legal and compliance risk, fraud and theft risk and the risk of operational errors.
