A Message from our President

We know many of you are following the news regarding Silicon Valley Bank (CA) and Signature Bank (NY), and the concurrent response from federal and state regulators. While we cannot comment on the specific challenges at these institutions, we wanted to assure you that our risk practices and industry exposures are in stark contrast to these two institutions. We are a community bank focusing on small businesses and diverse industries within the communities we serve. We have always prioritized safety and soundness, profitability, and growth, in that order.

First National Bank has been serving our customers and communities since 1889. Our mission statement is to be the preferred financial institution in the community by creating rewarding experiences for our employees, customers, shareholders and communities. We are well-capitalized, and we are stronger than ever, operating in a safe and sound way. Operating safely and soundly is important so we can deliver on our mission statement. We have weathered the storms of recessions, depressions, pandemics and other crises in our history. Throughout those times and today, we have been and are here to help you in your time of need.

Please reach out to your banker or local branch staff with any questions, but know we are here to serve you through all of life’s challenges.

Chase Anderson
President, First National Bank of Bastrop
