We didn’t get to where we are today by following the status quo. Instead, we’ve always made it a point to take our own path and make our own history. And today, as we continue to strive for new ways to evolve our business and client offerings even more, we invite you on this retrospective of growth and accomplishment.
Take a quick look back at some of our top achievements and innovations in banking.
As a Cornerstone Partner of The Vail Valley Foundation and the official bank of the 2015 FIS Alpine World Ski Championships, our competitive edge grew even sharper.
With the unveiling of our new concept financial center in Clearwater, Florida, clients got their first look inside the future of banking.
We proudly renewed our commitment to the city of Jacksonville and its one major sports team as we extended our stadium naming rights deal for another 10 years.
May 3rd was the first day you could go from client to owner. On this day, EverBank Financial Corp opened on the NYSE under the ticker symbol EVER.
Throughout the year, we led a vast, national expansion of our residential and commercial real estate lending networks, including the acquisition of Business Property Lending, a unit of GE Capital Real Estate, North America.
Leveraging our expertise in the global markets, we unveiled a new kind of wealth management that crafts worldly portfolios around the goals of the client.
Good for our name, but also a rallying point for a community, EverBank stepped up—acquiring the stadium naming rights for the city of Jacksonville’s one major sports team.
The acquisition: Tygris Commercial Finance Group, Inc. The result: a new subsidiary, EverBank Commercial Finance, Inc., serving a wide range of business financing needs.
Through the acquisition of Bank of Florida, we instantly expanded our reach of financial centers to key markets throughout south Florida.
During one of the nation's worst financial crises, while other banks tucked and ran, EverBank thrived. Disciplined management led to strong financial results and steady growth.
Yields ten times the national average? Indeed, and while our clients celebrated, Kiplinger's included our high yield checking account in their annual 'Best of Everything' issue.
As one of the early online banking trailblazers, it came as no surprise to be named a 'Best of the Web' site by Forbes.com—for the fifth time.
Clients praised the launch of our MarketSafe® CD—and safe access to historically risky markets—while Online Banking Report named it one of the year's Ten Most Significant Innovations.
Our history as First Alliance Bank of Jacksonville, FL, was in store for a big change with the 2002 acquisition of our current namesake and its coast-to-coast base of clients.
At the center of all we've ever done is the guiding tenet to always do right by the client. And in 1999 we put our money where our mouth is with the introduction of our Yield Pledge® promise.
