Four Bank Failures in 2019

There were four bank failures in 2019. This was up from zero in 2018. The median number of failures since the FDIC was established in 1933 was 7 – so 4 failures in 2019 was well below the median.

The great recession / housing bust / financial crisis related failures have been behind us for a few years.

The first graph shows the number of bank failures per year since the FDIC was founded in 1933.
