Islandia, New York (April 2, 2020) – With the anticipated completion of the acquisition of Gold Coast Bank on Monday, April 6, Investors Bank will double the size of its branch banking network in Nassau and Suffolk counties. New consumer, business and commercial clients will have immediate access to Investors Bank’s best-in-class online and mobile banking platform provides a full suite of products and services. These reliable, secure and easy-to-use systems give customers the flexibility to access their accounts at any time from the comfort and safety of their home or business.

During April 4 and 5, each of the former Gold Coast branches on Long Island and in Brooklyn will be transitioned to Investors Bank and will be ready for customers on April 6. Although the branches are being converted as the COVID-19 pandemic continues, Investors Bank is closely following healthcare and safety guidelines recommended by the CDC and New York State throughout the transition to protect the health of its customers and employees. More details are available by visiting the Investors Bank website: https://www.investorsbank.com.

In welcoming new clients, Investors Bank Chairman and CEO Kevin Cummings said, “We have focused significant resources to provide you with a seamless transition from Gold Coast Bank to our banking environment. Our branch banking teams and professional bankers, as well as our NICE Team at the Call Center are ready to introduce you to Investors’ comprehensive selection of personal, small business and commercial banking solutions that will fit your needs and help you realize your financial objectives.”

Speaking to new customers, Investors Bank Chief Retail Banking Officer Bill Brown said, “We are ready to serve you by exceeding your expectations and meeting your banking needs. The frontline banking teams who you have come to know and rely on will still be assisting you when your branch reopens as part of the Investors Bank network.”

“During these challenging times, we are asking clients to make appointments before visiting their branch,” said Mr. Brown. “Customers who visit our new Farmingdale location, may use the drive-up banking service. Our NICE Team in our Client Care Center is ready to respond to your questions, and the bank’s goal is to make this transition as smooth as possible.”

On Monday, April 6:
  • Former Gold Coast branches, now operating as Investors Bank will open and provide appointment-only, in-branch service from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays and 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturdays. To make an in-branch appointment or check branch status visit https://www.investorsbank.com.
