Unofficial Problem Bank list declines to 463 Institutions

This is an unofficial list of Problem Banks compiled only from public sources.

Here is the unofficial problem bank list for July 18, 2014.

Changes and comments from surferdude808:

Surprisingly there were few changes to the Unofficial Problem Bank List this week given that the OCC released an update of its enforcement action activity this Friday. There were two removals this week that push the list count down to 463 institutions with assets of $147.4 billion. A year ago, the list held 734 institutions with assets of $267.2 billion.

Removals this week include the OCC terminating an action against Commerce National Bank & Trust, Winter Park, FL ($77 billion). The other removal was the failed Eastside Commercial Bank, Conyers, GA ($169 million), which was the 13th failure this year. This is the first failure in Georgia since Sunrise Bank failed more than a year ago on May 10, 2013. Still, there have now been an astonishing 88 failures of Georgia-based institutions with aggregate assets of $33.4 billion since the on-set of the Great Recession. So 17.5 percent of the 503 institutions that have failed in this crisis were headquartered in Georgia.

Next week we anticipate the FDIC will provide an update on its enforcement action activity.
CR Note: The first unofficial problem bank list was published in August 2009 with 389 institutions. The list peaked at 1,002 institutions on June 10, 2011, and is now down to 463.
