Republic Bank is an outstanding financial institution with a very high capital rating and an excellent loan portfolio. They are extremely ultra conservative and lack a great deal of technical knowledge. They are paper intensive and tend to take a great deal of operational activity in establishing a relationship.
The people who work for the bank are for the most part pleasant. They work very hard but lack the skills to deepening bank relationships with customers because of the antiquated procedures set forth by their compliance department.
The branches that they have are ok but outdated and in some cases in desperate need of repair. The ascetics are the things that draw clients into the bank. These need to be addressed.
