Investors Bank Celebrates Newest Branch in Brooklyn
Brooklyn, New York – Investors Bank is inviting everyone in the neighborhood to the Grand Opening of its 18th Avenue Branch in the Bensonhurst neighborhood.
To introduce Investors Bank to the community, the 18th Avenue Branch team recently hosted special ribbon cutting ceremonies. The nonprofit United Chinese Association of Brooklyn (UCA) brought its talented Lion Dance performers to the branch for the event. Clad in elaborately decorated white, red and yellow lion costumes, UCA’s youth group paraded in front of and through the branch to bring good fortune to the business, its employees and its customers.
Before the ceremonies, Branch Manager Philip Tam noted that eight is considered a highly lucky number in the Chinese culture. This includes figures that contain an eight. The number eight is believed to be able to help a person achieve more prosperity and success. “We have many ‘eights’ at our branch,” Mr. Tam said, “which makes it a great place to bank. For example, I’m in the eighth year of my career in banking, the new branch is located at 6402 18th Avenue, and this is the 18th branch that Investors Bank has opened in Brooklyn.”
As part of Grand Opening Celebration, the 18th Avenue Branch is holding weekly drawings for magnificent prizes such as a Kindle Fire®, a 32GB Apple iPad®, and a Fitbit® Alta. People 18 years or older may register at the branch each week during the Grand Opening Period from June 1through August 25, 2017 to win one of twelve prizes. Please visit the branch for contest rules and regulations.
Through its new branch, Investors Bank is providing special promotional rates on consumer money market accounts as well as certificates of deposit (CDs) for businesses and individuals. The CDs can also be used for individual retirement accounts (IRAs).
Each time a consumer or business opens a new deposit account with a special interest rate between June 16 and July 13, 2017, Investors Bank will donate $25 to one of the three local nonprofits. Customers can choose one of three local nonprofit organizations: Bonei Olam, St. Athanasius Parish or the United Chinese Association of Brooklyn.
In discussing the 18th Avenue Branch, Investors Bank Senior Vice President and Regional Manager Ana Oliveira said, “Philip and his team are focused on making a positive difference in the community. First, they are putting community back in banking in this neighborhood by focusing on our core values. Second, we are providing exceptional banking services to our clients, volunteering their time to assist nonprofits and helping customers achieve their financial goals.”
Looking ahead, Investors Bank Vice President and Senior Retail Market Manager Roni Shoyfer said, “We expect the 18th Street Branch to grow rapidly. Our neighbors will quickly see we are ready to respond to the community’s needs by generously sharing our time, talent and resources. So, stop in today and experience our special approach to banking. You’ll be impressed.”
