One possible concern for the industry is the potential end to the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation program, which insures small business accounts, in December. This program was set up to encourage businesses to remain at smaller institutions by providing heightened security. However, its cessation could drive businesses to larger banks, often considered safer. If this shift were to take place smaller banks could lose their deposits, thus hampering their ability to lend.
