Promoting a safe, sound, and stable banking and financial system, and fair and transparent financial services


First Glance 12L

Posted August 31, 2022

The 2Q22 issue of First Glance 12L notes further improvement in the District’s job markets despite rising interest rates and declining consumer and business confidence. In addition, median loan growth among District banks — excluding Paycheck Protection Program loans — accelerated to nearly 16% year-over-year, the fastest pace among all twelve Federal Reserve districts and the strongest rate since 2006.

The 1Q22 issue of First Glance 12L notes further improvements in the job, housing, and commercial real estate markets despite a January surge in COVID-19 cases. Among District banks, quarterly loan growth and profits as well as on-balance sheet liquidity and risk-based capital ratios remained sound but eased slightly. Loans continued to perform well, but bankers’ expectations about the economic outlook dimmed.

Supervision in Brief

Posted April 11, 2022

As we come out of more than two years of weathering the effects of the pandemic, Twelfth District banking and economic conditions continue to show signs of recovery.

The 4Q21 issue of First Glance 12L notes the continued recovery of jobs, tight housing markets, and improved but uneven commercial real estate market conditions. Meanwhile, banks’ average loan growth accelerated, more than offsetting declining Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) balances. Quarterly profits continued to benefit from PPP fees and low provision expense burdens, but not to the same degree as 3Q21.
