Ally Financial Inc. (ALLY) has reached a settlement with the Federal Housing Finance Agency and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation to resolve outstanding mortgage issues. The bank, which used to be over lenderResidential Capital, disclosed an additional $170 million contribution to its loss reserves in the third quarter.
