Financial stats as of 12/31/2023

Our business model includes ensuring we have diversified deposit, loan, and investment portfolios. We don’t believe in putting all of our eggs in one basket. Academy Bank has a vast, diversified deposit base primarily funded by its retail branch network. Our loan portfolio is not focused on a single industry, geography, or sector. Academy Bank lends to individuals, local businesses of all sorts, and large, nationwide companies. When we invest, we prudently diversify our investments so that no one investment type threatens the soundness of our bank.
