March 2021 Community Banking Newsletter

We are pleased to present our Newsletter geared exclusively to Alabama’s Community Banks.  Our goal is to provide monthly updates on Community Bank M&A, industry issues and our local economy. We hope you find it useful.

Please click the link for a 2 minute read summarizing stock price, M&A activity, economic and industry news of interest to Alabama Community Bankers. One item highlighted in the Newsletter is the rise in prominence of PayPal. Recent surveys indicate 19% of respondents would trust PayPal to handle their finances, up from 5% in 2019. Banks fell 31% in the same survey. This will be another challenge to our industry.
