GrowthChartSeveral large banks with major Houston operations boosted their total loans by double digits in the first quarter, compared to the same period last year.

Out of a dozen banks with more than $1 billion in assets and a large presence in Houston, Cadence Bank NA saw the largest growth in total loans — that’s on top of having the largest fourth-quarter commercial and industrial loan growth in the country.

Five other banks — Houston-based Prosperity Bank and Green Bank, Dallas-based Texas Capital Bank, San Antonio-based Frost Bank and Beaumont-based CommunityBank of Texas — also saw double-digit loan growth in the first quarter, year over year.

While loan activity across the country was stagnant in the first quarter, dipping 0.5 percent for all U.S. banks, Houston-based banks boosted loans 13 percent over the same period last year to $26.7 billion in the first quarter, according to federal data compiled by Performance Trust Capital Partners LLC.
