Category 2 Banks under DOJ Swiss Bank NPA Program (8/25/15)

In a recent TNT article on 8/21/15, the author said The Justice Department has executed 31 non-prosecution agreements (NPAs) for Category 2 Swiss banks under its Swiss bank program so far, with its latest batch announced.  Nathan J. Richman, Swiss Bank Non-Prosecution Agreement Total Passes 30, 2015 TNT 162-1 (8/21/15) [no link available].  A reader emailed me to request whether I had the list.  I responded that I have my list which has 31 banks.  Since my list is based on the public announcements by DOJ Tax, I presumed that my list is the same as DOJ's unless I have made an error.

In any event, here is my list:

ARVEST Privatbank AG
Banca Credinvest SA
Banca dello Stato del Cantone Ticino (Banca Stato)
Banca Intermobiliare di Investimenti e Gestioni (Suisse) SA
bank zweiplus ag (Bank Zweiplus)

If anyone thinks this list needs correcting as of now, please let me know.

Keep in mind that these banks will be included in the IRS list here (which also includes banks where other publicly identified initiatives (such as DPAs and JDSs) were involved.  The point is to encourage persons with previoiusly undisclosed offshore accounts to come out to the IRS.
