Putting your money in one of the largest banks generally means you’ll have more access to in-person services at branches, a large ATM network, and a wide array of products and services, which can be convenient if you’re looking to do all of your banking in one place.
To find the largest banks in the U.S., we looked at domestic asset sizes of institutions that serve both consumers and small businesses. The list includes retail banks for personal banking, rather than investment banks. A bank’s assets include, among other things, the amount of its loans, mortgages and credit card accounts. Some of these banks have thousands of branches, while others are mostly — or exclusively — online. All of these banks are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.
Based on asset size, here are the top 20 largest banks in the U.S. according to the Federal Reserve.
