Personal Finance site NerdWallet recently released a study that named Rochester as #10 in consumer banking options out of the 100 largest U.S. cities.  Original post: "Ten Best Cities for Consumer Banking 2014."

 

Selecting cities based on the diversity of banking options, average savings account interest earnings, fees charged, and branch accessibility, among other criteria. Cincinnati tops the list. 

 

GRB gets a mention in the ranking list

 

Rochester makes its first appearance on this annual list in part by being home to a high number of bank and credit union branches. There are more than 70 branches per 100,000 residents operating within the city, meaning that residents have more ready access to in-person financial services. Even local institutions like Genesee Regional Bank offer a number of physical branches to help reach consumers. Rochester's ranking is also helped by a lower than average monthly checking fee, at approximately $8.24.

Thanks to a stable regional economy and a local customer base well-known to lenders, regional commercial lending standards have stayed the course since the 2008 financial crisis, reports the Rochester Business Journal.

 

Dave Halladay, senior vice president and GRB's chief lending officer, is quoted extensively in the article. "Customers who put expansions on hold are now looking to grow." He adds that GRB is making loans in sectors from manufacturing to sevices.

Empire State Lyric Theatre presents a chamber opera festival, March 2 - 4, 2012, and GRB is proud to be a major sponsor.

 

Susan Cotroneo, Executive Director, says that this festival is the first of its kind in the region. "Chamber opera is opera on a smaller scale; one act staged performances," she notes.  Even those new to opera will find these accessible and entertaining.
