Despite their reputation as impersonal and profit-driven, big banks do have certain advantages. Most offer a wide range of banking products and services, including online banking, credit cards and fee-free ATMs, as well as the convenience of numerous locations. It also turns out that in a good percentage of the 50 states, the biggest bank is actually a community or regional financial institution that aims to put customers first.

A Better Way to Bank

Joel Anderson and Jami Farkas contributed to the reporting for this article.

Methodology: GOBankingRates used the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.’s directory to find the largest bank by total deposits inside of market — meaning deposits within the state. Banks must be headquartered in the state. Total deposit figures (inside and outside state) are for informational purposes, not ranking. In three states (Massachusetts, Pennsylvania and Utah), the second-largest banks are listed because the largest provide investment and wealth management services rather than traditional banking services. All data on deposits was sourced from the FDIC’s Deposit Market Share Reports – Summary of Deposits report as of June 30, 2023. All data used to conduct this study was compiled and verified on Jan. 22, 2024.
