Net interest income increased $1.0 million over the first nine months of 2018, although the Bank did see some margin compression due to higher rates on deposits, most of which are due to mature/re-price in the last quarter of 2019,” stated Anker Fanoe, President and CEO. “Our team is extremely pleased with the Bank’s financial performance thus far in 2019. I am very pleased to announce that Pacific Valley Bank is recognized as a 5-Star Bank by Bauer Financial.”

Much of the loan growth in 2019 has been in real estate secured commercial properties and commercial and industrial loans.
