My father, who is quite conservative, likes to spread some of his money among CD's at different banks. Lately he's getting nervous about the possibility of alot of banks going under, given the current environment in the mortgage and credit markets. So he has asked me to help him try to find a source of information on where a given bank places its assets, in order to make sure if he invests there that his money will be safe. I found some general information at the federal reserve website, but no specific info on individual banks (just the foreign/domestic ratio). This is not my area of expertise at all, so if anyone has any leads, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.
