“First Republic feels more like a friend than a business.”
Brigette Lau and Chamath Palihapitiya | Northern California, Peninsula/Silicon Valley Clients of First Republic Bank Since ‘10

Chamath Palihapitiya is an entrepreneur and investor who has held pivotal roles at Winamp (AOL), The Mayfield Fund and, most recently, Facebook before starting his own company, Social Capital, with his accomplished wife, Brigette Lau. Unconventional thinkers, this couple doesn’t easily settle for the status quo. In fact, that is precisely why they chose First Republic — they wanted a bank that did things differently. The Bank has subsequently helped this couple buy their home in Silicon Valley and start their new business with a creative line of credit that enables them to seize opportunity. They appreciate the flexibility, speed and intimacy that First Republic brings to all their banking needs.
