We want to address recent events in the banking industry and the closures of Silicon Valley Bank (SVB) and Signature Bank that you are hearing about in the news.
The two banks closed by regulators were heavily involved in the cryptocurrency and start-up technology sectors. High Plains Bank’s loan portfolio is based in our communities; almost all of our deposits come from our communities, too. We do not have the high risk profiles of the specialty banks.
Your deposits with us are safe. Those of you with deposits of $250,000 and less are fully insured. There are ways to extend deposit insurance beyond $250,000, as well. We are happy to discuss those options. Please take a few moments to view the following video messages.
