In addition to our regularly updated map of TARP Capital recipients, BankBryanCave.com will now also be regularly updating a list of TARP Capital recipients sorted by state. We believe this listing (a) shows how the TARP Capital is being distributed across the county, and not just to “Wall Street” and (b) allows community bankers to reference other community banks in their geographic area for an understanding of how the TARP Capital program is really affecting similarly-situated banks.
We have used the location of the headquarters for the bank or bank holding companies that have received TARP Capital to sort by state. While there are a couple short-comings of this methodology (namely ignoring that many regional and national banks operate in multiple states and that bank holding companies may have multiple bank subsidiaries), we believe this approach does a great job of showing the diversity of recipients and accurately reflects, on an aggregate basis, where the TARP Capital is being distributed. (Note: the accuracy is significantly diminished when looking at dollars invested because the shortcomings are most significant with the largest banks, and the size of the investments in these banks distort any aggregate analysis.)
