Bank Elpo Presentation March 2009

Nearly 80 percent of the deposits in local savings banks are owned by those over age 55. By partnering with experienced eldercare professionals, a bank can build closer relationships with these maturing multi-generational families (aging baby boomers and seniors). Banks who pay attention to these critical customer segments will not only preserve their customer base but will see a substantial increase in attractive new depositors resulting in improved profitability.
