How to Search for U.S. Branches and Agencies of Foreign Banking Organizations

The Institution Search Screen has two general options:

  1. The left side of the screen will prompt you for a combination of certain search criteria such as name, geographic location, and entity type information.


  2. The right side of the screen requires an institution's unique identifier to perform the search.

The two search options are mutually exclusive. Information entered into the identifier search option on the right hand side takes precedence over any information entered on the left. In other words, if Institution Name information is entered in conjunction with an RSSD ID, the search performed will look for the RSSD ID only, the name information will be ignored.
