Banks Closed Down in 2018

See below the banks closed down in 2018.

 

In 2017, only 7 Philippine banks failed. Six were rural banks and one was a thrift bank.
This year, the month of January passed without any bank closed down, and I was glad.

The programs of the BSP, PDIC and Landbank to strengthen rural banks must have helped. Their Consolidation Program for Rural Banks (CPRB) has been relaunched and will be available until October 26, 2019. It encourages rural banks which are located near each other to merge or consolidate and become stronger. They will be helped to improve their systems and processes.

But February 9 came, and the first bank to be closed down in 2018 was announced.
And another on February 22.

See lists of banks closed down by the BSP and taken over by the PDIC from the years 2000 to 2018.
