JPMorgan to Repay $3 Billion to US Government Following Banking Crisis Depletion of Emergency Fund

Major financial institutions, including JPMorgan, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, PNC Financial Services Group, and Citigroup, will collectively contribute $8.2 billion to restore the emergency fund supporting the financial system, according to a Reuters report.

Among these banks, JPMorgan is set to pay the largest amount, totaling $3 billion, under the FDIC’s “special assessment” initiative proposed in May. This initiative aims to establish a system where large financial institutions cover the costs of safeguarding depositors.

The new system applies a 95% special assessment to banking organizations with total assets exceeding $50 billion, while those with assets under $5 billion are exempt from the assessment. The FDIC states that 113 firms are currently subject to these rules.

The FDIC’s decision is in response to the increasing dominance of the largest US financial institutions in the American banking sector, resulting in the closure of many smaller competitors. A recent example is the FDIC’s announcement of the closure of Heartland Tri-State Bank of Elkhart, Kansas, with its assets transferred to Dream First Bank, National Association (N.A.), also based in Kansas.

Despite a significant drop in deposits, JPMorgan, the largest US bank, posted an impressive Q2 presentation, reporting a 67% increase in quarterly profits, amounting to $14.47 billion for the quarter ending on June 30th.
