IN RE: Allstate Federal Savings Bank Northbrook, Cook County, Illinois

Application for Federal Deposit Insurance (Savings Association Insurance Fund)

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 with membership in the Savings Association Insurance Fund has been filed on behalf of Allstate Federal Savings Bank (AFSB). a proposed new federal savings bank to be located at 2775 Sanders Road, Northbrook, Illinois.

AFSB's sole shareholder will be The Allstate Corporation. AFSB's focus will be solely on trust services; by virtue of having a federal savings bank charter, AFSB will be able to exercise trust powers in all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

For the purposes of this proposal, the investment in fixed assets is reasonable, capital is adequate, future earnings prospects are favorable, and management is considered satisfactory. The proposal would not increase the risk to the deposit insurance fund. No formal objections to this application have been filed with the FDIC. Corporate powers to be exercised are consistent with the purpose of the Federal Deposit Insurance Act. No undue risk to the Savings Association Insurance Fund is apparent.

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