  5. Profile of Regulated Entities Information as of December 2005. * Does not include 17 out-of-state, state-chartered banks operating in Texas ($12,736 million). Budget Hearing

  6. Supervisory Information The total number of state-chartered banking organizations has declined. Most of this reduction is the result of merger activity. As a result, the surviving banks are substantially larger in size and operate many more branch locations. As the size of the organization increases, so does the complexity of its operations. Larger banks engage in more sophisticated investment ventures and provide a greater variety of products and services to their customers. Even though the number of banking organizations has decreased, the assets and branches have increased, and agency resources needed to appropriately supervise these businesses have not diminished. Larger and more complex banks also necessitate a better trained and experienced staff of examiners, including more subject matter specialists, to review their operations. • [1] Does not include out-of-state chartered banks operating in Texas. • [2] Includes Bank and Trust field examiners and related directors.
