Chief Financial Officer's (CFO) Report to the Board
I. Financial Results - Third Quarter 2020
Deposit Insurance Fund (DIF)
- For the nine months ending September 30, 2020, the DIF’s comprehensive income totaled $6.1 billion, compared to comprehensive income of $6.3 billion for the same period last year, a decrease of $244 million. Although assessment revenue increased year-over-year by $1.5 billion, this was more than offset by a $233 million year-over-year decrease in interest on U.S. Treasury securities, a $418 million year-over-year decrease in the unrealized gain on U.S. Treasury securities, and a year-over-year change in negative provision for insurance losses of $1.1 billion. The provision balance for 2020 is a negative $109 million, reflecting adjustments to loss estimates for prior year failures largely as a result of unanticipated recoveries from professional liability claims by receiverships and reductions to receivership future expense estimates. In contrast, the provision balance for 2019, a negative $1 billion, reflected large decreases in loss estimates for prior year bank failures, primarily arising from shared-loss liability reductions and unanticipated recoveries from litigation settlements and professional liability claims by receiverships.
- During September, the DIF recognized assessment revenue of $1.9 billion for the estimate of third quarter 2020 insurance coverage. Additionally, the DIF recognized a $144 million adjustment for higher-than-estimated collections for the second quarter 2020 insurance coverage, which increased assessment revenue.
- On September 30, 2020, the FDIC collected $1.8 billion in DIF assessments for second quarter 2020 insurance coverage.
