"Bank Where You're Known"
AUGUST 1, 2016 — As the president of The State Bank Group, I want to welcome the customers of Harvard Savings Bank. As of August 1, 2016, The State Bank Group officially acquired certain assets of Harvard Savings Bank.
This acquisition combines two banks that share a lot of common values when it comes to personalized service, commitment to the customer and community involvement. We have always believed in developing banking relationships to stand the test of time and create positive outcomes for businesses, homeowners, families and individuals.
Combining The State Bank Group with Harvard Savings Bank allows for the collective customers of each bank to benefit from additional products, services, and locations to better meet the needs of our customers and communities. The long-standing histories of both The State Bank Group and Harvard Savings Bank combine to over 100 years of institutional strength and community foundation.
The State Bank Group has six McHenry County locations. Combined with Harvard Savings Bank, there will be nine locations to better serve our customers:
As always, familiar faces and caring professionals will be ready to assist you and answer your questions.
Harvard Savings Bank locations will continue to run their current banking system until approximately the spring of 2017.
In the meantime, all bank customers can conduct transactions at any of the collective banking locations listed above. There will be no need to immediately change account information.
Additionally, Harvard customers can use the ATMs of The State Bank Group and vice-versa and any ATM fees for using either bank’s ATMs will be waived.
Some of the State Bank Group’s products and services will be available immediately to Harvard Savings Bank customers and others will become available once the banks’ systems are fully merged, The State Bank Group looks forward to having Harvard Savings Bank customers enjoy a greater range of benefits:
