NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Investors focus a lot of attention on the biggest U.S. banks, but they shouldn't overlook smaller so-called super-regional banks such as Fifth Third Bank
(FITB - Get Report) and KeyBank
(KEY - Get Report).
It's true that the top four money center banks (JPMorgan Chase (JPM), Bank of America (BAC), Citigroup (C) and Wells Fargo (WFC) control 54% of the total U.S. banking assets.
Yet the U.S.-based retail super-regional banks listed below account for more than $2 trillion in assets.
The super-regional banks also saw total assets increase by 2.7% during 2013, triple the 0.9% rate of the money center banks.
