We believe both moves will increase the visibility of our brand and attract new customer interest in our Bank. Despite recent uncertainty brought on by global trade disputes, we believe the economy remains on solid footing and our Bank is well positioned to serve our customers and will continue to deliver solid returns for our shareholders."
