Meeting your needs in challenging times – a letter from our CEO


We’d like to share our perspective on the current market volatility and the headlines that we’ve all been reading recently, including about the COVID-19 outbreak and the sharp decline in the price of oil.

It is natural to be concerned and have questions about how these market conditions can affect you. In my conversations over the last few days, I have found that there are a few questions that are the most commonly asked when it comes to investing in this environment. I wanted to share these with you proactively:

On behalf of our entire team, I want to thank you for banking with us, and let you know that we’re here to help if you have questions or need assistance.
