FDIC Problem Banks

The FDIC released the Q2 Quarterly Banking Profile today. The FDIC listed 416 banks with $299.8 billion in assets as “problem” banks in Q2, up from 305 banks with $220.0 billion in assets in Q1, and 252 and $159.4 billion in assets in Q4 2008.

Note: Not all problem banks will fail - and not all failures will be from the problem bank list - but this shows the problem is significant and still growing.

The Unofficial Problem Bank List shows 391 problem banks - and will probably increase this week
