Watchman: Another US Bank Quietly Shutters, As Bank Runs Persist And Deposits Decrease


By  winepressnews

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) seized the banks assets on November 3rd. In a press release the FDIC wrote:

Citizens Bank, Sac City, Iowa, was closed today by the Iowa Division of Banking, which appointed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) as receiver. To protect depositors, the FDIC entered into a Purchase and Assumption Agreement with Iowa Trust & Savings Bank, Emmetsburg, Iowa, to assume all of the deposits of Citizens Bank.

The two branches of Citizens Bank will reopen as branches of Iowa Trust & Savings Bank on Monday during normal business hours. This evening and over the weekend, depositors of Citizens Bank can access their money by writing checks or using ATM or debit cards. Checks drawn on the bank will continue to be processed. Loan customers should continue to make their payments as usual.

Depositors of Citizens Bank will become depositors of Iowa Trust & Savings Bank, so customers do not need to change their banking relationship in order to retain their deposit insurance coverage. Customers of Citizens Bank should continue to use their existing branch until they receive notice from Iowa Trust & Savings Bank that it has completed systems changes to allow its branch offices to process their accounts as well.

As of September 30, 2023, Citizens Bank had approximately $66 million in total assets and $59 million in total deposits. In addition to assuming all of the deposits, Iowa Trust & Savings Bank agreed to purchase essentially all of the failed bank’s assets.

Customers with questions about the transaction should call the FDIC toll-free at 1-866-314-1744. The phone number will be operational this evening until 9:00 p.m. Central Time (CT); on Saturday from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. CT; on Sunday from noon to 6:00 p.m. CT; on Monday from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. CT; and thereafter from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. CT. Interested parties can also visit the FDIC’s website.

The FDIC estimates that the cost to the Deposit Insurance Fund (DIF) will be $14.8 million. Compared to other alternatives, Iowa Trust & Savings Bank’s acquisition was the least costly resolution for the DIF, an insurance fund created by Congress in 1933 and managed by the FDIC to protect the deposits at the nation’s banks. Citizens Bank is the fifth bank to fail in the nation this year. The last failure in Iowa was Polk County Bank, Johnston, Iowa, on November 18, 2011.

This regional bank closure adds to the growing list of financial institutions falling this year, with speculation that a large number more are potentially at risk. SEE: Collapse: Accredited Weiss Research Warns 5,274 US Banks Have The Potential To Fail, As More Bank’s Ratings Are Downgraded

Largely unreported by the media, deposits from large and smaller institutions continue to dwindle. Within the last three weeks plus, the Federal Reserve reports that a whopping $100 billion reduction in deposits were recorded. Particularly deposits dropped from $17.38 trillion on September 27th to $17.28 trillion by October 18th.

This coincided with a survey from the Fed that revealed Americans are still concerned about a looming banking bust.

Although survey respondents noted the banking sector has stabilized since the period of acute stress earlier this year, many highlighted risks of renewed deposit outflows given that large portions of deposits remain uninsured.

Survey respondents viewed small and regional domestic banks as particularly vulnerable due to their higher concentration of CRE exposures, which could lead to tighter bank lending conditions.

Even though the public is largely in the dark about the true scope of the financial landscape transpiring, some bellwethers are being reported in the mainstream that do provide some insights into what’s going on.

Jamie Dimon, CEO of JP Morgan-Chase, the largest bank by assets in the United States, dumped 1 million shares of his own stock last week, CNBC reported, though this was attributed to his possible retirement and not to instability in the economy.

But the week before that CNBC also reported that “Big banks are quietly cutting thousands of employees, and more layoffs are coming,” read the headline.

Pressured by the impact of higher interest rates on the mortgage business, Wall Street deal-making and funding costs, the next five largest U.S. banks have cut a combined 20,000 positions so far this year, according to company filings.

CNBC wrote

Banks are cutting costs where they can because things are really uncertain next year.

They need to find levers to keep earnings from falling further and to free up money for provisions as more loans go bad. By the time we roll into January, you’ll hear a lot of companies talking about this.

Chris Marinac, research director at Janney Montgomery Scott, said in a phone interview.

Watchman Expects Many Bank Failures: Accredited Weiss Research Predicts That 5,274 U.S. Banks Will Fail

By StevieRay Hansen | May 16, 2024 |

HNewsWire: “The underlying financial weaknesses in the U.S. banking industry are widespread, and the FDIC’s newly expanded guarantee of all deposits does nothing to protect shareholders in bank holding companies, who could still lose most or all of their money,” the group said. Weiss Research Inc., one of the most accredited and well-respected independent rating agency, is sounding-off that an astronomical number of American banks will collapse because they are insolvent. According to this rating firm, after analyzing the books and balance sheets of the Federal Reserve and banking institutions, Weiss Research claims that a monstrous 5,274 banks and credit unions have the potential to collapse. To put the number into perspective, there is are 9,457 banks and credit unions in total exist in the United States. This is almost 56% of all the financial institutions in the U.S. According…


Watchman: Professor and Top Economist (Satan Soldiers) Reveals Central Banks’ Desire To Microchip You in Order To Manage CBDCs,666

By StevieRay Hansen | April 29, 2024 |

HNewsWire: “But what was already ready around 2015, is the ultimate goal – what they really want, apparently, I was told by a Central Banker – is CBDC looks like a small grain of rice that they want to put under your skin, which is my view a violation of human dignity. And they realize there is a hurdle to get people to accept this.” Economics Professor Richard Werner, the man who introduced the economic philosophy of “Quantitative Easing” (QE1 and QE2), recently dropped a bombshell of information regarding the future of commerce and money, and how central banks are working to usher it in. Prof. Werner has directly worked with central bankers to discuss policy and monetary action, and is a bestselling author who has predicted a lot of the problems world economies face today, and was even honored as…

Watchman: Megabanks Like the Big Four in the United States Produce Financial Instability and More Severe Crises, Big Bank Collapse Coming

By StevieRay Hansen | October 11, 2023 |

HNewsWire: By Pam Martens and Russ Martens: It took eight years of research to compile a data set of annual balance sheets of more than 11,000 commercial banks dating back to 1870 in 17 advanced economies. And in every country, the study arrived at the same finding: concentrating the banking system in the hands of five or less giant banks leads to financial instability and more severe financial crises. The bank balance sheets of the following countries were examined: Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The 150-year banking study is titled: “Survival of the Biggest: Large Banks and Financial Crises.” Its authors are Matthew Baron of Cornell University; Moritz Schularick of the Kiel Institute for the World Economy and Sciences; and Kaspar Zimmermann of the…
