America's top 10 biggest banks
In the years since the financial crisis, the nation's biggest banks have gotten bigger than ever. Together, the top 10 U.S. banks now hold $10.2 trillion in assets.
For a sense of the vast scale of that wealth, it's nearly 12 times the value of all the real estate in Manhattan -- the Empire State Building, Freedom Tower, everything. In fact, four of the top 10 banks have more than a trillion dollars each in assets.
To even get into this exclusive club, you need at least $282 billion in assets, enough to buy a fleet of 22 of the Navy's latest Ford-class aircraft carriers.
