Wednesday, March 27, 2013

In an article entitled "Small Banks Developing Ways to Compete Against Payday Lenders," the American Banker featured CDBA member One PacificCoast Bank. The article states, "More community banks are preparing to fight payday lenders and technology upstarts for a bigger share of short-term, small-dollar loans. For smaller institutions such One PacificCoast Bank in Oakland, Calif., and National Bank & Trust of Sycamore in Illinois, the battle isn't about booking loans. Rather, the goal is to win back fee income that community banks have ceded to others in recent years."

The article continues to describe One PacificCoast's innovation, stating "One PacificCoast also has an alternative to paycheck advances. The $282 million-asset bank offers a service to employers that lets workers take out small-dollar loans."
