Happy New Year!

Time flies when you’re having fun – where did the last year go? 2023 was a challenging year in banking. We experienced the fastest increase in interest rates since the early 80’s and the first drop in our national money supply since the Great Depression. These events put pressure on the liquidity and margins of banks across the spectrum, ultimately leading to the collapse of three large banks: Silicon Valley Bank, Signature Bank, and First Republic. While the business models of these banks are different than a community bank like ours, their failures serve as a reminder of the vital role our depositors play in ensuring our stability. We thank you for your ongoing support and trust in us.
