1996 Annual Report of Trust Assets for the FFIEC

The Annual Report of Trust Assets for December 31, 1996, will be mailed to your institution in
the near future. The report must be completed no later than February 18, 1997, by all
commercial banks, savings banks and savings associations that have obtained approval to
exercise trust powers. Any affiliated trust companies must also complete the report.


The FDIC collects and processes the forms on behalf of the member agencies of the Federal
Financial Institutions Examination Council (FFIEC). Information collected is used in the
supervision and examination of trust institutions by the Federal Reserve System, the Office of
the Comptroller of the Currency, the Office of Thrift Supervision and the FDIC.


If your institution does not exercise its trust powers, you must indicate this in item 1 of the
signature page and return only that page in the envelope provided with the report.

The major change to the 1996 report is the addition of Schedule E, Fiduciary Income Statement.
This information must be reported by (1) all trust institutions with $100 million or more in total
assets as reported on Schedule A and (2) all nondeposit trust companies. Other institutions are
encouraged to complete Schedule E voluntarily. Schedule E may be completed on a "best
efforts" basis for 1996 because this is the first year in which income, expense, and loss
information is being collected. Information provided on Schedule E is confidential and is not
subject to release to the public on an individual-institution basis.
Minor changes have been made to the report's general instructions as well as to the specific
instructions for Schedules A and C. For ready reference, these are shown in bold italics in the
instructions accompanying the forms. These changes were made in response to requests for
clarification of the instructions.


Schedule D should be completed only by those few institutions that have an affiliated
investment advisor. In such cases, the affiliated investment advisors should complete the form
and return it directly to the FFIEC (not the FDIC) at the address shown on the form. If your
institution does not have an affiliated investment advisor, do not complete Schedule D.
Institutions required to respond to the report will be mailed a publication entitled Trust Assets of
Financial Institutions - 1996 after the report results have been compiled. The publication
contains information on trust assets, collective investment funds, corporate trust activities,
affiliated investment advisors, and fiduciary income.
For additional information, please call the FDIC's Trust and Survey Group at (800) 765-4081 or
(202) 898-6652, or contact your primary supervisor at the telephone number listed on page 4 of
the instructions.
Thank you for your cooperation.
