“Everything should be fine:” Customers transition smoothly following abrupt Guaranty Bank closures
At first it seemed alarming as customers found out Guaranty Bank is no more.
Those who might take the biggest hit of all are the Guaranty Bank employees.
The Office of the Comptroller of Currency (OCC) explained Guaranty Bank had substantial losses “due to unsafe or unsound practices” and found “the bank was significantly under capitalized.”
Depositors are told not to to worry because though the bank has been closed, it has been taken over by First-Citizens Bank.
