An Important Message from Bank of Clarke
In the wake of recent news regarding the closure of Silicon Valley Bank and Signature Bank, I wanted to take a moment to provide some information on what has occurred and how these banks (and others that may also fail in the coming days) are so significantly and fundamentally different than the Bank of Clarke.
Since 1881, through the Great Depression, the Great Recession, and a host of other periods of economic uncertainty in our 141-year history, the Bank of Clarke has been committed to serving our customers and our communities, and this period is no different. The Bank remains well-capitalized, diversified, and well-positioned to weather economic turmoil.
What has happened:
The Bank of Clarke does not participate in any crypto-currency programs, and we do not lend in the start-up and venture capital markets. Furthermore, the Bank is a profitable organization that just reported record earnings and growth in 2022 and is well positioned to continue that trend in the coming years.
As we have been over the past 141 years of our very strong history, the Bank of Clarke remains focused on serving our customers, communities, and shareholders and will continue to do so in a safe, sound, and relationship-based manner. If you do have any questions regarding the Bank and/or your specific relationships, please reach out to us online at www.bankofclarke.bank, through our call center at 800-650-8723, or visit one of our branch locations.
As always, thank you for your support of the institution as we are only as strong as the communities we serve, and we do so at your pleasure.
President & CEO
