Principal Financial Group Inc. (PFG) and Popular Inc. (BPOP) joined the more than 100 lenders, insurers and financial companies that have applied for Troubled Asset Relief Program funds totaling at least $65.8 billion, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.
Fifty-seven received preliminary approval for $51.5 billion, while 48 more awaited word on requests totaling at least $14.3 billion.
The Treasury's $700 billion rescue plan for financial firms, announced in October, includes $125 billion allocated to the nine largest U.S. banks and $125 billion originally earmarked for smaller regional lenders.
Some insurers and finance companies are planning to convert to banks to become eligible for the funds. Totals may be higher because disclosures of applications are voluntary, and some smaller institutions are omitted.
Applications for publicly held lenders were due by Nov. 14. The Treasury is accepting requests from privately held banks until Dec. 8.
