The FDIC Quarterly provides a comprehensive summary of the most current financial results for the banking industry, along with feature articles. These articles range from timely analysis of economic and banking trends at the national and regional level that may affect the risk exposure of FDIC-insured institutions to research on issues affecting the banking system and the development of regulatory policy. The FDIC Quarterly brings together data and analysis that were previously available through three retired publications -- the FDIC Outlook, the FDIC Banking Review, and the FYI: An Update on Emerging Issues in Banking. Past issues of these publications are archived under their original publication names.2011 Volume 5, Number 2 (PDF) 1.7MB (PDF Help)
FDIC-insured institutions reported an aggregate profit of $29 billion in the first quarter of 2011, an $11.6 billion improvement (66.5 percent) from the $17.4 billion in net income the industry reported in the first quarter of 2010. This is the seventh consecutive quarter that earnings registered a year-over-year increase. More than half of all institutions (56.2 percent) reported improved earnings. For the sixth consecutive quarter, reduced provisions for loan losses drove the improvement in earnings.

On September 15, 2008, Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. (Lehman) filed for bankruptcy. The disorderly and costly nature of the bankruptcy—the largest, and still ongoing, financial bankruptcy in U.S. history—contributed to the massive financial disruption of late 2008. In this article FDIC staff examine how the government could have structured a resolution of Lehman under the orderly liquidation authority of Title II of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2010 and how the outcome could have differed from the outcome under bankruptcy.
