Mutual funds and annuities at Tenth District banks
Mutual funds are today's second-largest financial industry in the United States, second only to commercial banks. Since 1990, mutual fund assets have more than doubled to $2.3 trillion. Such rapid growth, coupled with the desire of banks to expand into new financial services, has prompted up to one-fourth of all U.S. commercial banks to begin selling mutual funds and annuities. Some banks have even begun to manage and provide investment advice to their own mutual fund companies. This article shows that many commercial banks in the Tenth District states are following the national trend, with large banks leading the way.
