March 13, 2023

In light of recent news stories regarding the challenges of a few financial institutions, Canandaigua National Bank & Trust (CNB) remains well capitalized and well positioned to continue to serve our customers and community. CNB is an insured Member FDIC financial institution which protects our deposits.

“As a community bank, we reinvest our deposits back into the communities we serve,” said CNB President and CEO Frank H. Hamlin III. “CNB manages and maintains a diversified approach to deposits, lending, and funding sources reducing our risk to impacts of a single industry or investment. We also make decisions locally, which means that we focus on our local economy’s health and wellbeing.”

“The Rochester region has always been economically stable,” said Hamlin. “We are not saturated with venture capital and start-ups, as seen in areas like Silicon Valley and thus not subject to the volatility experienced by start-up companies not in a position to survive adverse economic conditions.”
