Banking is a family affair for Ed and Peggy Kavounas. Ed, a founder of Rockwood Capital, and Peggy, a retired nonprofit director and filmmaker, serve actively on boards and travel often to see friends and family – including their three sons and eight grandchildren. Advocates of the personal attention they’ve received from the Bank, the couple suggested that each of their sons open accounts as well, expanding their family presence at First Republic. Their banker and broker handle their most critical financial needs personally. And the Bank helps guard against fraud by providing cyber security checks at home. They appreciate working with people who know them and who make things easier for them.
