Banking Market Definitions (Competitive Analysis)

Banking organizations and the public are encouraged to use the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis’s CASSIDI tool to review banking market definitions (structures) and the potential competitive impact of merger or acquisition proposals.

CASSIDI stands for Competitive Analysis and Structure Source Instrument for Depository Institutions. Through CASSIDI, users in the Minneapolis Fed’s Ninth Federal Reserve District and nationwide are able to:

  • view banking market structures and definitions (including related maps),

  • view the banking markets a particular depository institution operates in; and

  • perform "what if" (pro forma) analyses to determine the potential changes a merger or acquisition could have to banking market structures and competition.

CASSIDI strives to be the one-stop shop for your banking competition information needs. If you have questions regarding the use of CASSIDI, please contact us.
