The early companies, of which the first was founded in 1822, were also interested in the insurance business. In 1853 the first company was chartered to do exclusively trust business. Immediately after the Civil War the real trust company movement began, and when the Comptroller of the Currency began in 1875 to make his annual reports, 35 companies handed in statements to him. The list was incomplete, for the statements were voluntary and many companies did not make them. The rate of growth was rapid, between 1890 and 1900 almost doubling, and between 1900 and 1910 almost trebling. By 1909 the individual deposits of the trust companies, as well as their total resources, exceeded those of the state banks. The competition of the trust companies with the state and national banks was most intense at the time of their rapid expansion, between 1900 and 1915. The comparative growth of the various kinds of banks is shown in the table on page 433.
