These Are The 15 Largest Banks In The U.S.

The 15 largest banks in the United States have a combined total of approximately $12.95 trillion in assets as of December 31, 2023.

This exclusive club of top banks in America changes from time to time, as larger banks do business with each other and smaller banks move out, replaced by faster-growing rivals. Mergers and acquisitions may also play a role in this.

Or the failure of one bank could lead to a consolidation of the largest banks in the US, such as on May 1 when JPMorgan Chase took over all of the deposits and almost all of the assets of First Republic Bank. First Republic was the 14th largest bank by consolidated assets as of March 31, 2023.

First Republic was the second largest bank failure in 2008, behind Washington Mutual, which was also acquired by JPMorgan Chase.

Here are the largest banks in the US by consolidated assets, according to the latest data from the Federal Reserve.
