The announcement was made in July 2015 that an application to merge First Security Bank & Trust and Hampton State Bank, both owned by Cedar Valley Bankshares, Ltd, would be submitted to regulatory agencies for approval. The expected date the two organizations will merge is December 7, 2015.
First Security Bank & Trust Company has over $461 million in assets, headquartered in Charlies City with offices in 14 north Iowa communities. Additional information may be found at www.1stsecuritybank.com.
Hampton State Bank became a subsidiary of Cedar Valley Bankshares, Ltd in October 2014. The current staff has continued and will continue to serve customers and manage the bank after the merger. The commitment to our customers and community remains in the forefront. Becoming part of the First Security team affords us more ways to serve our customers.
Hampton State Bank’s staff will continue to be active in the community in a volunteer capacity and in leadership roles. The bank will also continue to support the local area by making donations to worthy community projects.
I encourage you to call (641-456-2559) or stop in and see what Hampton State Bank and First Security Bank have to offer. Or you may email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I am available to visit whenever it is convenient for you.
