"As we have done since 1985, we operate with an emphasis on safety and stability at all times, while maintaining a well-diversified deposit base."
  • The company is continuing to fund loans, process transactions, and serve its clients, they said.
  • On Friday, First Republic (FRC) shared sank as much as 52% after SVB Financial's (SIVB) Silicon Valley Bank failed.
