Over the past week, concerns and doubts have been raised about the banking industry with the failure of Silicon Valley Bank in California. SVB had exposure to the Crypto industry, as well as other specialty businesses that inherently carry more risk.
While we cannot speak to the specific practices and circumstances that ultimately led to SVB’s collapse, we can reaffirm to our customers that we remain committed to the mission of Guardian Savings Bank.
Our business model is simple and sound – and has withstood the test of time. Guardian Savings Bank serves our communities by offering mortgages and real estate-related loans, along with competitive deposit products. None of that has changed. As always, we are ready to continue to move forward and serve our customers with our simple community-based approach to banking.
Guardian Savings Bank will continue to serve you – our valued customers – by engaging in safe and effective banking practices. While recent events may have created mistrust towards our industry as a whole, you can rest assured that we will continue in our tradition of responsible and conservative banking practices.
Thank you for your continued trust in us.
Kirk Koppenhoefer, President
Guardian Savings Bank
