There are quite a few credit unions and smaller "savings institutions" that are not FDIC insured.

 Not to mention all the FDIC insured "savings institutions" that are worth less than $100 million....

    No time to comment on most, but just to throw this in there:
       Here in the states we have a few hundred thousand different banks at

    banks, and almost every city has at least one credit union.  The city I grew 
    up in has 12 or so different credit unions, along with all the major bank 

  FDIC says:

   4,893 banks or savings institutions have more than $100 million in assets; 3,517 have $100 to $500 million; 859 have 
$500 million to $5 billion; 150 have $5 to $50 billion; and 22 have more than $50 billion.

  Circa 2003.
