You can locate specific information about banks under Bank Data & Statistics, such as call and thrift financial reports, summary of deposits, trust examination overview, Securities Exchange Act filings and aggregated financial statistics.

Performing a search by the name of a bank retrieves all relevant results about the bank across multiple categories. Each link corresponds to a Web page on FDIC.gov that features full details of a bank's performance or data in a particular category. Some of the categories include failed bank information, bank closings and corporate resolution plans.

There are also direct links under Industry Analysis to uniform bank performance reports, FDIC quarterly banking profiles and a succinct list of failed banks. Searching by a bank's name within the Institutional Directory retrieves a bank's institutional snapshot, with links to the institution's combined summary financial report and its preliminary call and thrift financial reports.

Clicking the summary financial report link under Cert displays a bank's current list of offices, its FDIC comparison to peers, uniform performance report, summary of deposits and the Federal Reserve organization hierarchy of the bank's brick-and-mortar branches.
