Unofficial Problem Bank list unchanged at 435 Institutions

by Calculated Risk on 9/20/2014 08:05:00 AM

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

Here is the unofficial problem bank list for Sept 19, 2014.

Changes and comments from surferdude808:

Only one addition and deletion to report this week to the Unofficial Problem Bank List. So the list count stays steady at 435 institutions but assets move down slightly to $137.4 billion. A year ago, the list held 692 institutions with assets of $242.9 billion. This is the fourth time since November 2012 the weekly list count has gone unchanged otherwise the week-to-week list count has been declining since August 10, 2012.

This week the OCC terminated its actions against The First National Bank and Trust, Atmore, AL ($130 million). Added this week was Fayette County Bank, St. Elmo, IL ($53 million). Notice of this action came from the Illinois Department of Financial & Professional Regulation, which is one of the few state banking departments in the nation to provide transparency around its enforcement actions against commercial banks. So we give them major props and wish that all of their state brethren be as transparent.

Next week, we anticipate the FDIC will provide an update on its enforcement action activities.
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 435.
