Like NYCB, Flagstar is first and foremost a community banking organization, with a history of helping individuals, families, and businesses flourish. Together, we can provide even more financial opportunities for the customers and businesses we serve.
Based in Michigan, Flagstar Bank was started in 1987 and has grown to operate 158 branches in Michigan, Indiana, California, Wisconsin, and Ohio. Flagstar is known for their custom, tailor-made financial solutions for customers and businesses alike.
NYCB and Flagstar are strong strategic partners with a similar culture, mission, and approach to service; complementary offerings; a shared commitment to community; and no geographic overlap.
- The merger will accelerate NYCB’s expansion by providing customers access to a larger branch and ATM network, expanded resources, deepened industry knowledge, and diverse skill sets.
- We believe that together, with the capabilities and scale of an $85 billion+ bank, we are better positioned to deliver a stronger, more personalized financial experience to our customers, augmented by our technology, while delivering long-term shareholder value. Like NYCB, Flagstar is an award-winning bank and recipient of the America’s Best Banks 2021 award by Forbes.
