Capital and Liquidity Remain Very Strong
SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–First Republic Bank (NYSE:FRC), a leading private bank and wealth management company, today said it has further enhanced and diversified its financial position through access to additional liquidity from the Federal Reserve Bank and JPMorgan Chase & Co.
The additional borrowing capacity from the Federal Reserve, continued access to funding through the Federal Home Loan Bank, and ability to access additional financing through JPMorgan Chase & Co. increases, diversifies, and further strengthens First Republic’s existing liquidity profile. The total available, unused liquidity to fund operations is now more than $70 billion. This excludes additional liquidity First Republic is eligible to receive under the new Bank Term Funding Program announced by the Federal Reserve today.
Jim Herbert, Founder and Executive Chairman and Mike Roffler, CEO and President of First Republic Bank said, “First Republic’s capital and liquidity positions are very strong, and its capital remains well above the regulatory threshold for well-capitalized banks. 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. First Republic continues to fund loans, process transactions and fully serve the needs of clients by delivering exceptional service.”
