With the integration of Turnberry Bank and Metro Bank of Dade County into one well-capitalized financial institution, NAFH National Bank is dedicated to serving local business and retail customers, according to Luis Yepez, manager of the Aventura office located at 20295 N.E. 29 Place.
“Safe, sound and secure with money to lend is the best description of NAFH National Bank,” said Yepez. “We offer Internet banking, and our residential mortgage specialists take care of our customers with quick approvals. We also provide traditional banking products for business and customers, supported by easy processing services.”
According to Yepez, the bank also offers special accounts for persons over 50; students and civic employees; and a full array of business banking products including commercial accounts and cash management services.
Through an investment of capital from North American Financial Holdings (NAFH), its parent company, NAFH National Bank is now in a growth mode, according to Evan Rees, South Florida market president and commercial banking executive for NAFH National Bank. NAFH National Bank now has 10 South Florida offices – eight in Miami-Dade and two in Broward.
“We have the ability to lend up to $20 million to small and mid-size business customers, and we are highly responsive to those requests,” he said. “We also have money for other business loans, consumer loans and retail mortgages – just stop in at any of our convenient branches.”
“Our customers will see the same friendly, professional faces,” continued Yepez. “And when you call us for assistance, you’ll be speaking with your own personal banker, not some call center or automated phone system. We are stronger than ever with same great service that you have grown to expect from us.”
Yepez added that NAFH National Bank operates on the principles of exceptional attention to the financial needs of its customers and the highest quality financial services. “We offer unparalleled, personal service and superior financial products, as well as new state-of-the-art technology,” he said.
Noting that both Turnberry and Metro Bank have long traditions of community involvement, Yepez said, “As NAFH National Bank, we will continue to be leaders in our community, and plan to make even greater contributions in the future.”
NAFH was formed in July, 2010 to invest in strategically important financial institutions located in important banking markets. Collectively, the bank now operates 10 branches in South Florida and 13 branches in South Carolina. The growing family of North American Financial Holdings’ banks presently has assets of approximately $3.2 billion.
