Message from CEO and President
March 17, 2023
To the Customers and Communities Rio Bank serves,
There has been a significant amount of discussion this week regarding the soundness of our nation’s banking industry. What happened to Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) in California and to Signature Bank in New York was unfortunate. We always feel sorry for businesses that fail. We sympathize with their shareholders and customers. The failure of these two banks is largely the result of some poor business decisions made by their management teams that exposed them to more risk than most banks in our country.
We are reaching out to you today because the media seems intent on trying to make these two bank failures a national crisis in the banking system and that hysteria seems to be causing concern by some customers.
For over 38 years, Rio Bank has been prudent in its lending practices by monitoring and maintaining strict policy limits in our loan portfolio. We lend to a wide range of industries and collateral types. This is a sensible practice for well-managed banks. On the deposit side of our bank, we are proud of the diversity in our nearly 24,000 accounts of which less than 2% exceed the current FDIC insured limit of $250,000. This core deposit base of Rio Bank remains a true strength of our organization.
Rio Bank just completed an examination by the FDIC and received a very clean examination report. Your bank is on solid ground and there is no reason for any customer of Rio Bank to be concerned about the safety and soundness of their bank. One thing about banks, we are very transparent about our financial conditions. At the end of each quarter, every bank provides a copy of our financial statement and our profit and loss statement to the public. We encourage all depositors to look at the financial statements of the banks that they deposit money in and
Rio Bank has actually seen an increase in its number of customers during the past week. There seems to be a flight to safety and people see Rio Bank as the well-capitalized bank that it is. The holding company that owns Rio Bank has over $80 million dollars on deposit in Rio Bank and knows that money is safe.
America’s banking system is resilient and remains able to support the economy and communities they serve despite global pandemic, rising inflation, and an unprecedented increase in interest rates. Texas banks are among the strongest in the nation. If Texas was a nation, Texas would have the 9th largest economy in the world. That is why you see so many out of state banks opening offices in Texas.
Know that we, at Rio Bank, take our fiduciary responsibility to our customers very seriously. The business decisions we make are always putting prudence over profits. We are proud of our bank and the strong capital position that we hold. We maintain a strong liquidity position and we want to continue to maintain these sound banking practices not only today, but into the future.
Your Kind of Bank and Your Kind of Bankers.
