Research Quarterly: US Financial Institutions – Financial & Regulatory Data

The U.S. financial system, with over $23 trillion in assets , is a large, complex system set up to serve the needs of individuals, corporations, and governments of all sizes. Since the global financial crisis, financial institutions and regulators have worked to shore up the strength and resiliency of the system. Using the Federal Reserve’s Comprehensive Capital Analysis and Review (CCAR) firms as a proxy for the system, this quarterly report provides a snapshot of the current landscape. (Please see the Appendix for methodology and firm lists.) We analyze select income statement, balance sheet and regulatory ratio statistics and trends, which show this group of firms has much higher capital levels and healthier balance sheets than during the global financial crisis.
