2008 to 2018: Colorado a Decade of Change

September 8, 2018

By: Larry W Martin


A lot has happened in banking since June 2008.  The first significant domino was the failure of Lehman Brothers.  Nationally, the number of FDIC insured institutions has fallen 34% from 8,451 at June 30, 2008 to 5,542 for June 2018.  What has happened in Colorado?  How has the loan mix changed?  Has efficiency improved?  How competitive are Colorado based banks in deposit gathering compared to out of state institutions.


Those are some of the questions we had, so we decided it would be worthwhile to factually document the situation.  The following link takes you to a very brief analysis of the changes in last decade.
