JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Mar. 2, 2017 – Efficiency, improved integration and the opportunity for growth led Silvergate Bank to select FIS™ (NYSE: FIS), a global leader in financial technology, for a technology transformation – from a new core banking relationship to branch, digital and mobile banking, compliance, risk and back-office systems.

Focused on providing the highest level of personal service to customers, Silvergate implemented the new solutions from FIS to better equip the bank and its staff to meet the growing needs of customers. The FIS core banking suite allowed the bank to streamline many of its third-party systems, such as account opening and loan servicing, resulting in improved operational efficiency and cost effectiveness.

“FIS’ breadth of solutions make it a strong choice for growing banks that want to offer new services while creating greater efficiency,” said Anthony Jabbour, chief operating officer, Banking & Payments, FIS. “Silvergate Bank’s hallmark has been its ability to deepen relationships with customers and focus its culture on meeting their needs. FIS is pleased we could support Silvergate in making such a strong, strategic move, which has positioned it for a bright future.”

“At Silvergate Bank, we’re committed to providing customized banking solutions to our customers that satisfy their needs today and over the long-term,” said Alan Lane, CEO, Silvergate Bank. “FIS was an exemplary partner throughout this conversion, advocating for our needs and making this the smoothest core conversion anyone here had ever experienced.”

By consolidating a wide-range of third-party relationships into FIS solutions that work together and require less oversight, the bank has realized significant efficiency gains. Combined with the quality of FIS’ support teams, that gave bank leaders the confidence that FIS could best position them for a strong future.

Privately held and headquartered in La Jolla, Calif., Silvergate Bank is a business-focused bank with nearly $1 billion in assets. It has operated in the San Diego area since 1988.
