BHCs today engage in a significantly broader range of activities than the narrow limits set out in the 1956 BHCA, enabled through subsequent amendments to the Act.
BHCs can apply and elect to be FHCs and then conduct any activities permitted under GLB and BHCA. These activities must be 1) financial in nature or incidental to such financial activity or 2) complementary to a financial activity and present no substantial risk to the safety or soundness of the financial institutions or the financial system.

Depository institutions were considered "banks" while investment banks (e.g., those that trade stock on Wall Street) were deemed "non-banks" under the law.
