34th Bank To Fail This Year (us)

Recommended Posts

Do we care, are we too busy with all the other distractions?

The 34th bank to fail this year, BankUnited (BKUNA) had $12.8 billion in assets, $8.6 billion in deposits and 85 branches.

34th Bank failure

>The FDIC estimates it will take a $4.9 billion hit to its deposit insurance fund.

So they had 12.8b in assets and still managed to get down to net value of -4.9B to be covered by FDIC (printy printy?). That is some enormous asset writedown.

Coming to UK banking PLC? I wouldn't be suprised if our lot hold many of the same assets and are still avoiding a writedown to market value.
