FDIC publishes 2023 Risk Review

The FDIC last week published its 2023 Risk Review. The report summarizes conditions in the U.S. economy, financial markets and banking industry.

The 2023 Risk Review provides a comprehensive summary of key developments and risks in the U.S. banking system, as in prior reports, and includes a new section focused on crypto-asset risk. The report focuses on the effects of key risks on community banks in particular, as the FDIC is the primary federal regulator for the majority of community banks in the U.S. banking system.

The FDIC’s Risk Review is an annual publication and based on year-end banking data from the prior year. This year’s expanded report incorporates data and insights related to the recent stress to the banking sector through first quarter 2023. FDIC intends to publish its next Risk Review in the spring of 2024.
