Wells Fargo Bank of San Francisco remained the No. 1 institution in the county with $10 billion in deposits, a market share of 20.6 percent, according to the FDIC.Wells Fargo was No. 1 last year, too.
The deposit totals are as of June 30, before Wells Fargo was publicly shamed for a wide-ranging scandal that saw employees opening accounts without customers’ permission. But the embarrassing headlines are unlikely to matter — Palm Beach County bank customers stuck with big Wall Street banks even after the financial collapse of 2009.
Bank of America, headquartered in Charlotte, N.C., is the county’s No. 2 bank, while New York-based JPMorgan Chase is No. 3. Other big players include PNC Bank of Pittsburgh, TD Bank of Toronto and SunTrust Bank of Atlanta.
The largest bank headquartered in the county is Palm Beach Community Bank of West Palm Beach, with a market share of just 0.6 percent. Paradise Bank of Boca Raton has a market share of 0.5 percent.
In all, Palm Beach County bank branches held $48.6 billion in deposits as of June 30, up from $45 billion a year earlier.

Scott: Florida outpacing nation in job and labor force growthbyJaryd B
"When I sold my home I interviewed many Companies. Knowing most buyers come from the internet I was looking for a Company with a strong internet presence. I googled some terms like, "Lake Worth Homes For Sale" and "homes for sale in Lake Worth", and almost every time Exit Realty Premier was on the first page of Google. Then when I met with the agent from Exit Realty Premier and saw the HD photographs, aerial photos, on line visual tours and videos and all the technology I was sold. I signed with them and sold my home in record time, for the price I wanted and had a smooth quick closing. My agent was very professional and knowledgeable and kept me informed every step of the way.
