The report measures the Cash Surrender Value (CSV) of bank-owned life insurance (BOLI) held by banks based on asset size and product type (General Account, Separate Account and Hybrid Account). It also summarizes the number of banks reporting BOLI assets by asset size and product type. In addition, the report includes the ratio of BOLI assets as a percentage of Tier 1 capital and as a percentage of the sum of Tier 1 capital and the allowance for loan and lease losses. Finally, the report ranks the top banks relative to their BOLI holdings by examining data reported to federal banking regulators by the nation’s 7,083 banks and savings associations. BOLI is an important investment for banks. As of the end of 2012, banks had $138 billion invested in BOLI policies.
