Unofficial Problem Bank List & Health Ratings - August 23rd Update

Sunday, August 25, 2013 - 2:04 PM
The Calculated Risk blog has updated its Unofficial Problem Bank List. The number of banks on the list went down by three.

Bank Health Ratings

For more info on the financial health of banks and credit unions, you can view our Bank Health Ratings page which provides a table of banks and credit unions with the worst Texas Ratios. You can also sort based on the best Texas Ratios to view the safest banks.

Our financial health ratings are based on financial data that the FDIC and NCUA release each quarter. The FDIC released Q1 2013 financial data in last week of May, and the NCUA did the same soon after . We now have imported the new FDIC and NCUA data, and all of our bank and credit union financial health ratings are now based on this Q1 data.

The FDIC should be releasing Q2 data next week.
