Community Banking and Univest

Philip C. Jackson, President, Corporate Banking, Univest Bank and Trust Co.

Univest prides itself on being a key member of the community banking sector. In terms of clients, service level and products, there are marked differences between investment banks, money center and regional banks. As we prepare to start a new year, I thought it would be helpful to review what makes Univest different and the advantages of banking with a community bank.

Community Banking Defined

Community banks are independent, locally managed banks with assets typically of $10 billion or less. They operate in a limited geographic area where they are well known by their customers, with an emphasis on personalized service. Community banks are committed to providing bank services to local individuals, families, nonprofit organizations and small- to medium-size businesses.
