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 Mari Colina, vice president and manager of the South Miami office at 7312 Red Rd.
“NAFH National Bank is a safe, sound and secure financial institution with money to lend,” Colina said. “We offer traditional banking products for business and customers, Internet banking, and our residential mortgage specialists take care of our customers with quick approvals.
“Supported by easy processing services, we offer 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 now is 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 counties.
“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,” Rees added.
“Our customers will see the same friendly, professional faces,” Colina said. “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.
“NAFH National Bank operates on the principles of exceptional attention to the financial needs of our customers and the highest quality financial services,” Colina added. “We offer unparalleled, personal service and superior financial products as well as new state-of-the-art technology.”
Noting that both Turnberry and Metro Bank have long traditions of community involvement, Colina 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.
