Deposit Solutions from IntraFi

[My boss] has an ‘on top of it’ philosophy. ICS gives us a single statement and we know we’re protected, and where the money has been transferred to. The service was made for someone like him.

[Sec. 202 of S. 2155] is a step in the right direction. It makes it easier for community banks to accommodate large depositors.

Bert Ely

Principal, Ely & Company

[Section 202 of S. 2155] gives Empire State Bank a powerful new tool to compete with the largest institutions for the deposits generated by small professional offices. It provides a way for Empire State Bank to attract new, valuable customers—customers that not only have sizeable deposits, but who can act as a referral source to other customers for our lending and other services. It also gives the bank a tool for managing liquidity.

Phil Guarnieri

CEO, Empire State Bank

Funding Solutions from IntraFi

It’s really important for us to have a stable, reliable, accessible, and nimble source of funding at a reasonable price, and that’s something that [IntraFi] provides for us.

Charles Levingston

Executive Vice President, CFO, Eagle Bank

We love that [IntraFi] gives us options. We can either attract deposits through and sell the excess to other banks through or purchase funding. This is especially helpful in today’s regulatory environment.

Reciprocal Deposits

CDARS is the perfect match for us and our public fund customers. It can eliminate the need for deposit collateralization, which frees up our time, frees up their time, and reduces everyone’s administrative tracking costs. It also allows our previously restricted funds to work harder and for their funds to be channeled back into the local community. We all win.

Russell L. Reinert

Chief Financial Officer, Central Bank and Trust Co., KS

Reciprocal deposits are an important piece of our expansion strategy, and I can someday see us bumping the limit of the lesser of $5 billion or 20% of total liabilities, in part because they are a great tool for attracting municipal funds.

Thomas E. Bates, Jr.

President and CEO, Legends Bank

Our public funds customers appreciate knowing that when they place their funds through ICS, those funds are eligible for FDIC protection beyond $250,000 and earn interest. That benefits them, as well as local taxpayers, as our bank can make those funds available for investment within the community.
