    How to Find Public Information on the Web about
    Individual Banks

    One way to get public information about an individual bank is to go to a Web site maintained by a federal bank regulator: the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (national banks), the Federal Reserve Board (state chartered banks that are members of the Federal Reserve System and bank holding companies) and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (insured state banks that are not members of the Federal Reserve System). These agencies maintain records about the banks they supervise. If you want to find out about a financial institution that is not a bank, you can visit the Web site maintained by the Office of Thrift Supervision (savings and loans) or the National Credit Union Administration (credit unions).

    If the bank you're interested in is a national bank, you are already at the right site. The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) maintains a variety of public information about the national banking system. If you do a search about the bank you're researching you may find a list of OCC documents in which your bank is mentioned. Documents can include, for example, a corporate application filed by your bank to merge with another bank or to engage in an innovative activity. You'll also find evaluations of your bank's performance under the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA), or information about an enforcement action the OCC may have imposed (or withdrawn) on the bank. Since much of the public information about a national bank is not available electronically, you also can contact the OCC's Communications Division to find out how to get paper-based information.

    If you don't know which federal agency is the primary regulator of the bank you're interested in, you can go the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) Web site and click on the Institution Directory. Enter the name of the bank and you will get a list of likely matches (many banks have similar names). The FDIC is also a good source to get statistical information about individual banks, including national banks. For example, you can get demographic data and financial profiles derived from quarterly reports filed with federal regulators. The Federal Reserve Board's National Information Center of Banking Information also may be useful, because it has balance sheet and income information about banks and bank holding companies.
