Conventional bank deals have returned as a fixture in the industry in recent quarters.
Among targets with less than $1 billion in assets, failed banks have largely been replaced by willing sellers. That has kept the total turnover of assets about as high as it has been at any point in the past decade. (Data on deals by assets sold and number of announcements are shown in two tabs in the graphic below. Interactive controls that filter by deal type, target asset size and time period are described in the captions. Text continues after the graphic.)
