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.
