Unofficial Problem Bank Lists Increases to 584

by Calculated Risk on 1/22/2010 10:42:00 PM

This is an unofficial list of Problem Banks compiled only from public sources. CR NOTE: This was compiled before the 5 bank failures today. There was a "timely" Prompt Corrective Action issued against Charter Bank, Santa Fe, NM and the bank was seized today!

Changes and comments from surferdude808:

The Unofficial Problem Bank List increased by a net two institutions to 584.

Aggregate assets total $305.3 billion, up from $304.8 billion last week. Additions include Pamrapo Savings Bank, Bayonne, NJ ($573 million); Capitol City Bank & Trust Company, Atlanta, GA ($322 million); Bank of Virginia, Midlothian, VA ($226 million); and Independence National Bank, Greenville, GA ($138 million).

Deletions are the two failures last week – Barnes Banking Company ($828 million), and St. Stephens State Bank ($25 million). The other change is a Prompt Corrective Action order issued by the OTS against Charter Bank, Santa Fe, NM ($1.3 billion) on January 20, 2010, which was already operating under a Cease & Desist order.
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.

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".
