The past 15 years have shown unprecedented concentration in the commercial banking space in the US, with banks with more than US$10 billion in assets gaining deposit share in a dramatic way. On the other end of the scale, the number of banks under US$100 million in assets dropped by 5,967 from 1992 to 2010. Bart Narter, Senior Vice President of Celent’s Banking group, discusses bank concentration trends and makes predictions for the future. This webinar explores the deposit gathering of banks by asset category, following the top five banks and how they have merged, acquired, and evolved to obtain nearly 35% deposit share.

The presentation draws on findings from the report It Takes More Than a Village Redux: The Decline of the Community Bank.
