BankTracker updates

Posted: Sept. 29, 2016 | Tags: BankTracker

Our BankTracker report has been updated with the latest figures from the Federal Deposit Insurance  Corporation (FDIC) to reflect the second quarter ending in June 2016. BankTracker traces the financial health of every bank and credit union in the country.

Banks have declined by more than 27 percent since the Great Recession began in December 2007. But total assets, capital, deposits, profits and reserves have all collectively improved, according to an in-depth analysis of FDIC data by the Workshop published earlier this year.  

The most recent data were analyzed by Wendell Cochran, the creator of the project and the Workshop’s former senior editor, who also contributed to the March analysis by data reporter Josh Benson.

In BankTracker, you can search by bank or by credit union to see assets, loans, deposits, reserves, profits and real-estate holdings, among other things. BankTracker still is the only publicly available site that provides this data.
