Since 1934, FNBD has worked to provide regional businesses with smart lending resources to weather even the most difficult economic cycles. As the oldest chartered bank in Imperial Calcasieu, FNBD didn’t just survive the Great Depression; we made sure our customers thrived far beyond it. We have veteran bankers that have successfully navigated their clients through difficult financial cycles over the last 40 years. Those veterans, coupled with a team of talented, credit-trained, professional young bankers continue this tradition of assisting our clients through today’s tough times.
The Bank FNBD team is well-versed in working with the SBA, and our senior management team, including our two on-staff CPAs, successfully grasped the complexities of the Paycheck Protection Program offered by the CARES Act. Our entire Bank FNBD team of lenders, loan assistants, and loan operations personnel worked tirelessly into the evenings and over the weekends to ensure all of our clients were taken care of. We proudly state that we had 100% of our PPP loans approved for 250 business clients. That’s $27,000,000 supporting 3,500 local jobs. We assisted local businesses across a wide spectrum—including small mom-and-pop stores, restaurants, and a variety of essential industries such as industrial service companies and critical medical providers—get access to emergency funding.
We have the mobile communications and online tools needed to traverse the modern banking landscape. The Bank FNBD team had the foresight to implement critical precautionary measures and the safety equipment required, ensuring our banking services continue to be available when the communities we serve need them most, while keeping our teammates safe.
Bank FNBD has a strong capital and liquidity position, a high-quality loan portfolio, expert management, and a team that tirelessly strives to keep local businesses secure and supported. We’ve always been here to serve our clients—from the largest to the smallest—and our resilience and dependability has earned us a personal level of trust that is often missing from large publicly traded banks.
Bank FNBD has supported our community for 85 years and counting. As a local community bank, we are here for you during the good times and bad.
Bank FNBD cares—that’s the truth.
