The quarterly financial reports all federally insured banks and
thrift institutions must file with regulatory agencies now are
available on a new Internet site developed jointly by the Federal
Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and the Office of Thrift
The new Web site includes both the Reports of Condition and Income,
generally known as "Call Reports," for all FDIC-insured commercial
banks, and the Thrift Financial Reports (TFRs) for all FDIC-insured
thrift institutions. The site provides users with a vehicle for
obtaining detailed financial information submitted by institutions
supervised and regulated by the FDIC, OTS, Office of the Comptroller
of the Currency and Federal Reserve System.
Every FDIC-insured national and state-chartered bank is required
to file consolidated Reports of Condition and Income, normally at
the end of each calendar quarter. The specific reporting requirements
for banks depend upon the size of the bank and whether it has any
foreign offices. Every federally insured savings association is
required to file a consolidated Thrift Financial Report at the end
of each calendar quarter.
Users of the new Web site can review and print the on-line Call
Report or TFR for any individual institution. Call Reports and
TFRs for several quarters, beginning with the March 1998 reporting
cycle, will be available. The site is being enhanced so that
download to spreadsheet capabilities will be operational when the
September Call Reports and TFRs are available in December 1998.
The new "Call/TFR Reports" site can be found on the FDIC's Internet
home page (www.fdic.gov
) under "Bank Data" and "Banking News."
