Raleigh, North Carolina, UNITED STATES

RALEIGH, N.C., Dec. 09, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- First Citizens Bank announced that its Biscayne Bank division based in Coconut Grove, Fla., has completed its conversion to First Citizens’ operations and systems. This conversion puts both banks on the same operational and technical systems and aligns customer accounts to First Citizens products and services.

“This completed conversion signifies the continued growth of our company and further strengthens our presence in South Florida,” said Frank B. Holding Jr., chairman and CEO of First Citizens Bank. “We look forward to serving our new customers who now have access to our extensive array of products and services.”

The conversion includes all of the former Biscayne division accounts. The four former Biscayne division locations (two in Coconut Grove, one in Doral and one in South Miami) are now part of the First Citizens branch network. Signs at the former Biscayne Bank division branches carry the First Citizens Bank name.

Customers can now bank at any First Citizens branch in their communities. First Citizens operates 31 branches in Florida.

In addition, they can bank at any First Citizens location throughout the bank’s 19-state branch network, through First Citizens Digital Banking (online and mobile), by ATM and by telephone. Information detailing the conversion and transition to First Citizens was mailed to Biscayne customers in November.
