President, Chief Executive Officer
Welcome to Peoples Bank! On Monday, January 31, 2022, we successfully completed the acquisition by the merger of Royal Savings Bank. Peoples Bank is now your financial institution, and our goal is to ensure that you experience a smooth transition. Royal Savings Bank will join Peoples Bank, and the newly combined network will allow us to better serve our customers by extending accessibility across Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana.
Peoples Bank is a full-service community bank headquartered in Munster, Indiana, and our mission is to help our customers and communities be more successful. We are dedicated to helping our customers move forward in life—forward with their finances, their goals, their hopes, and the dreams they have for themselves and their loved ones. Every service we offer, and every interaction we have with our customers, is guided by this commitment.
Our next step is to bring together the technology systems of Royal Savings Bank and Peoples Bank so that there is a seamless, disruption-free transition to Peoples Bank. Once the systems are integrated in early April 2022, there will be an expanded menu of personal, business, digital, and wealth management products and services. Until then, Royal Savings Bank will continue its current offerings.
As a community bank, we feel a responsibility to provide the products and services our customers need to be able to conduct banking however and whenever they choose. It is our goal to ensure that Peoples Bank is the partner that helps our customers reach their financial goals based on individual needs. At Peoples Bank, technology enhances the banking experience, but will never replace the relationships we build with our customers.
In the next few months, we will be sending more information that discusses the benefits of banking with Peoples, as well as resources that introduce our wide range of traditional and digital products and services. In the meantime, please visit us on the web at ibankpeoples.com for merger updates and to learn more about us.
