Philadelphia-based Republic First Bank, which was doing business as Republic Bank, was closed. To protect customers' deposits, "the FDIC entered into an agreement with Fulton Bank, National Association of Lancaster, Pennsylvania to assume substantially all of the deposits and purchase substantially all of the assets of Republic Bank."

Republic Bank is the first U.S. bank failure in 2024.

At the end of January, Republic Bank had approximately $6 billion in total assets and $4 billion in total deposits. The failure of the bank will cost the Deposit Insurance Fund an estimated $667 million.
