Problem Bank List (Unofficial) Sep 4, 2009

This is an unofficial list of Problem Banks.

The list is compiled from regulator press releases or from public news sources (see Enforcement Action Type link for source). The FDIC data is released monthly with a delay, and the Fed and OTC data is more timely. The OCC data is a little lagged. Credit: surferdude808.

Changes and comments from surferdude808:

During the week, 12 institutions with aggregate assets of $17.7 billion were added to the Unofficial Problem Bank List.

The list stands at 421 institutions with assets of $267.8 billion.

Largest among the additions is Capmark Bank, a Utah-based industrial loan company with assets of $11.1 billion. Should the parent, Capmark Financial Group, not find a buyer this could be another costly failure. Other notable additions include the $2.4 billion Bank of the Cascades, Bend, Oregon; the $1.9 billion Citizens First Savings Bank, Port Huron, Michigan; and two bankers’ banks – Midwest Independent Bank in Missouri and Nebraska Bankers’ Bank.

All three deletions from the list were because of failure including Affinity Bank, Mainstreet Bank, and Bradford Bank. Lastly, the OTS issued a Prompt Corrective Action order against Vantus Bank, Sioux City, Iowa, which was already operating under a Cease & Desist order.

Class: from FDIC
The FDIC assigns classification codes indicating an institution's charter type (commercial bank, savings bank, or savings association), its chartering agent (state or federal government), its Federal Reserve membership status (member or nonmember), and its primary federal regulator (state-chartered institutions are subject to both federal and state supervision). These codes are:
  • N National chartered commercial bank supervised by the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency
  • SM State charter Fed member commercial bank supervised by the Federal Reserve
  • NM State charter Fed nonmember commercial bank supervised by the FDIC
  • SA State or federal charter savings association supervised by the Office of Thrift Supervision
  • SB State charter savings bank supervised by the FDIC
  • Cert: This is the certificate number assigned by the FDIC used to identify institutions and for the issuance of insurance certificates. Click on the number and the Institution Directory (ID) system "will provide the last demographic and financial data filed by the selected institution".
