 TARP Bank Programs Turn Profit

Treasury Building

The U.S. Department of the Treasury announced that the Troubled Asset Relief Program’s (TARP) investment in banks has now turned a profit after three financial institutions repaid a total of $7.4 billion in TARP funds today to taxpayers.

Acting Assistant Secretary for Financial Stability Tim Massad also announced a new analysis that evaluates the fiscal cost of the government’s broader efforts to restore financial stability.  Writing that "it is important to include a complete view of the expected profits and losses from all of those programs – not just TARP," Massad included the analysis in a Treasury Notes blog post.
