Regents Bank: Truly A Community Bank


Regents Bank San Diego Staff

In the publication American Banker last week there was an article titled “FDIC Seeks New Definition of Community Bank”. In the article it referenced a study, still ongoing; with a goal of not only defining, but more importantly understanding, what the parameters and characteristics are which constitute a “community bank”. Mentioned in the article were the traditional parameters of asset size, amounts of loans and core deposits. While financial measurements must certainly be part of the equation, we also all know that “community involvement” is what separates those banks that have brick, mortar and money from those of us that also have all of that, but just as important, have a heart for the community in which we work and live.

At Regents Bank we believe that being an active and supportive member of the community is every bit as important as financial data. We are very proud of the amount of time our employees donate to many very worthy causes and organizations in the communities we serve throughout San Diego County and Vancouver, WA.

A partial list would include:

Junior Diabetes Research Foundation
APS (Andy Paul Sanchez) foundation
La Jolla Half Marathon
Susan G. Komen Walk for the Cure
San Diego’s Portuguese community
Small Business Development Center
Junior Achievement
Kiwanis Club of San Diego
Washington Lincoln Laurels for Leaders Foundation
STAR San Diego
Home Aid San Diego
Carlsbad Chamber of Commerce
Scripps Children’s Hospital Auxiliary
NAIOP9 Community Group / Adopt a Military Battalion
Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF)

At Regents Bank we are very proud of the efforts of our people to make our communities a better place to raise families, build businesses…to help people have a better quality of life. No matter what the final and official definition of a community bank the FDIC arrives at, you can rest assured that the people at Regents Bank are proud to be part of your community and are committed to making it a better place to live for generations to come.
