U.S. Bank remains the deposit market share leader in Wisconsin, a report by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. Shows. 

Of every $100 deposited with banks in Wisconsin, $17.98 — or 17.98 % of the total — was with U.S. Bank as of June 30, according to the regulatory agency’s annual Summary of Deposits. The report put U.S. Bank’s Wisconsin deposits at about $32.2 billion. 

Trailing U.S. Bank in deposit market share were BMO Harris Bank and Associated Bank, at 13.65% and 10.57%, respectively. 

Although it’s possible for a bank to change totals by buying deposits or shifting a large amount from elsewhere into a market rather than generating them from consumers and businesses locally, the annual FDIC deposit report generally reflects which banks are leaders in a state or local market. 

Rounding out the top 12 banks in deposit market share in Wisconsin were: 

Chase, 7.47%; Wells Fargo, 3.74%; Johnson Bank, 2.75%; Nicolet National Bank, 1.99%; Town Bank, 1.44%; PNC Bank, 1.36%; Bank First, 1.26%; North Shore Bank, 1.05%; and National Exchange Bank and Trust, 0.98%. 

The FDIC report also shows how bank deposits rank in the state’s biggest metro markets. BMO Harris was tops in market share in four metro areas in Wisconsin – more than any other bank. National Exchange Bank and Trust held the most dominant local market share, with nearly 43% of bank deposits in the Fond du Lac market.
