Breaking News: Amalgamated Bank Goes Public & Makes an Impact
Our Heartland Network congratulates our newest member, Amalgamated Bank, which announced yesterday that it successfully launched a public offering ("IPO") at $15.50 per share. This is an important milestone for the bank and the culmination of a great deal of hard work by the entire company.
Amalgamated is the country's longest running labor-sponsored bank, and, as we demonstrated in our Responsible Investor Handbook, an unwavering leader in responsible banking, good corporate governance and impact investment. According to bank President and CEO Keith Mestrich, in a letter to his team, "Investors specifically called out our unique
focus on meeting the needs of other mission-driven and sustainable business as a key driver of our value."
Kudos to Keith and the growing bank family (which is growing even more due to the merger with San Francisco's New Resource Bank), including Steve Sleigh, Heartland's co-chair and a bank board member.
