First Republic Bank, April 30, 2012

Bank Deepens Commitment To The Region

First Republic Bank, a leading private bank and wealth management company, today announced the opening of a third Boston location at One Post Office Square in downtown Boston.

First Republic’s Post Office Square location will provide lending, deposit and wealth management services to individuals, businesses, foundations and nonprofits. Bankers at First Republic’s Post Office Square location serve as a single point of client contact to a team of professionals who manage both sides of a client’s balance sheet.

First Republic’s new location is part of a broader expansion in Boston that includes new offices and a significant number of bankers, portfolio managers, wealth managers, and foreign exchange professionals. In May, First Republic plans to open a new office in Wellesley just outside of Boston.

First Republic also continues to expand its team of Boston business bankers, who work closely with the bank’s offices in San Francisco, Silicon Valley, New York and Los Angeles to meet the specialized needs of venture capital, private equity, nonprofits and professional services firms.

In addition to its Post Office Square location, First Republic has banking offices at 160 Federal Street and 772 Boylston Street in Back Bay.
