Return on investment in a Community Bank is worth its weight in gold

          This linked article is one of the best current explanations I have seen about the value of owning stock in community banks. What a great title!


          When Smaller Is Better, Small bank stocks can be hard to find, but are worth their weight in gold when you uncover the right one. 


            Now also look at information about Patriot Financial Partners, a private equity firm focused on investing in community banks throughout the United States. Their portfolio consists of more than 1,000 public and privately-held depository institutions that have between $500 million and $5 billion of assets.

          Not only added prestige in being a Bank Director/Investor, but this also opens up a tremendous super highway for more business for your growing career. One FDIC requirement is attending at least 75% of the Board meetings – in person … Conference Call … Skype. Of course, the FDIC will have some added requirements from time-to-time.

          Ernie Garfield, my long-time friend, has helped start 31 very successful banks and 9 bank holding companies. Over the years, his consulting team has assembled more than 400 directors, over 1,000 advisory board members and about 7,000 investors of bank stock – about 4,500 in Arizona. Most are qualified investors.


          Financial Investment in the bank is minimal, so Ernie makes it easy to get involved. He uses this approach because after we reach a certain stage in life; we get approached repeatedly to join one venture or the other.
