Introduction: What You’ll Learn About Banking In Your City And State
Fort Scott is the largest city in Clay County, Kansas. Two banks are located in Fort Scott: City State Bank and First National Bank of Fort Scott-Lincoln. The population of Fort Scott at the 2010 census was 10,960, making it the largest city in Clay County. Fort Scott was founded in 1842 and was a strategic outpost during the Civil War. Fort Scott is located on the Missouri River and is an excellent place to visit for those interested in history.
Fort Scott National Historic Site: The old fort has continually been reconstructed and restorations are still being done. Visitors are able to tour the restored fort almost as it was in the days of its construction. Fort Scott was a pivotal location during the Civil War. Many battles were fought at this site and General Grant himself visited Fort Scott during his inspection tour of military installations across the country. He noted that the fort was the best constructed in the country.
Dinosaur Days: The Dinosaur Days organization encourages Fort Scott residents to get out of their homes and take part in cultural events such as cook-offs and other activities. The play “The Lost Colony,” written by William Shakespeare, is performed here every year. This play is also performed at Mt. Savage High School every other year, with a different cast each time it is performed. There is also a Midcontinent Railway Museum in Fort Scott, which is dedicated to Fort Scott’s involvement in the building of the first transcontinental railroad. The museum was founded by Allen and Mable Inlow and currently features more than 400 items from daily life in early 20th-century Fort Scott and the surrounding area.
How City/State Banks Differ From Their Regional Rivals
City and state banks differ in that they are not regulated by the Federal Reserve System (FED). State and city banks are under the jurisdiction of the state bank supervisor. There are advantages to being a city/state bank. You will have fewer regulations, less advertising expense and little need for outside investors. However, you will also find it difficult to obtain bank loans, because the credit market is not as deep as that of a regional bank. And when you are in trouble, state and city banks cannot be rescued the way a regional bank can.
Many city banks have been around for a long time, with many state and city bank web sites that feature historical information, so I thought it would be a good idea to check out how these banks differ from the regional counterparts. The only way I could find to compare city/state banks was to see how they ranked against their regional peers. See the following chart for a few answers:
J.P Morgan Chase Manhattan City Bank is ranked first in quality of deposits, loans and investments (QDI). At the other end of the spectrum, Wells Fargo Bank is ranked last in QDI. The average city bank ranks eighth in QDI
Swift National Bank is the top city bank in terms of the dollar value of loans to businesses. The average rank is fifth and the average value of loans to businesses is $1,125 million. More than half (56%) of these banks’ loan portfolios are located outside their home state.
Where State Banks Stand Out From Their Regional Rivals
The big advantage a state and city bank has over a regional bank is its lower operating costs (no federal reserve and no outside investors). The smaller number of branches and ATMs also makes it cheaper to operate. And, as a state and city bank, it can participate in the federal deposit insurance scheme.
Federally chartered banks have to put up $100,000 to become a member of the Federal Reserve System. They do not see that money again until all their assets are paid for. The remaining assets get handed over to the federal government when the bank fails. And the government is always quicker off the mark than the creditors.
So, the question is, “Why would anybody do this?”
