IN RE: First Internet Bank of Indiana Indianapolis, Indiana

Application for Federal Deposit Insurance

STATEMENT

Pursuant to the provisions of section 5 of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act (12 U.S.C. 1815), an application for federal deposit insurance has been filed on behalf of First Internet Bank of Indiana, Indianapolis, Indiana, a proposed new state chartered stock bank to be located at 8335 Allison Pointe Trail, Suite 101, Indianapolis, Indiana.

First Internet Bank will offer traditional banking products on the Internet, and will have no traditional branch locations. Initial capitalization is adequate, and projected deposit growth, if realized, will result in operating profits within a reasonable period of time. The factors relating to general character and fitness of management and risk to the deposit insurance fund have been resolved as favorable. A review of the applicant's statements and other available information revealed no inconsistencies with the purpose of the Community Reinvestment Act.

The trade area is categorized into three segments in the application. Hamilton and Marion counties in Indiana are designated as the bank's primary trade area. The secondary market will be the state of Indiana, and the tertiary market will include all of the United States. No formal objections to this proposal were filed, and granting of deposit insurance to this institution would have no substantive effect on the competitive environment. The proposed investment in fixed assets is reasonable, and future earnings prospects are favorable.

Accordingly, based on careful evaluation of all available relevant facts and information, the Associate Director, pursuant to delegated authority, has concluded that approval of the application is warranted.
