  • Three of the 'Big 4' U.S. banks post declines: Citigroup Inc (NYSE:C), JPMorgan Chase & Co (NYSE:JPM) and Wells Fargo & Co (NYSE:WFC) all reported decreases in total assets in the fourth quarter. Citi's assets fell by $70.46 billion, or 3.0%, quarter over quarter, while assets at JPMorgan and Wells Fargo declined by about 0.4% each.
  • Canadians go hunting south of the border: Two of Canada's largest banks, Toronto-Dominion Bank and Bank of Montreal, have announced blockbuster deals for U.S. banks over the past three months, adding over $190 billion in assets combined.
  • Regulatory M&A scrutiny expected to increase: Large deals like these are expected to face increased regulatory scrutiny as the Biden administration has directed regulators to take a closer look at sizable bank deals, and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. is soon expected to create new regulatory hurdles for M&A transactions that involve banks with over $100 billion in assets or that would create a bank above that threshold post-merger.
