Clients place trust and confidence in GSB. Despite market turmoil caused by risky banks, GSB continues to experience deposit growth. This continues our long-term positive trend, growing stable deposits at an average annual rate 9% over the last 5 years.

GSB Deposit Growth

Responsible Banking Means Financial Security

Our depositor base is stable and well diversified. We don’t look for deposits from unknown or niche markets, and we don’t make larger, riskier loans to huge, faraway companies. GSB grows deposits from our neighbors across Connecticut, to small and local businesses in diversified industries. We’re not under pressure to increase our risk, unlike larger publicly held institutions that may tolerate more risk to meet shareholder demands for higher returns, which is why GSB does not rely on a small concentration of large depositors to fund our assets. If you have questions about your account’s FDIC coverage, or would like to learn more about FDIC insurance and how it works, we encourage you to contact us or access the following resources:

Given our sound balance sheet and capital position, GSB has strong relationships with many funding partners. As a result, GSB has access to an abundant amount of funding should the need ever arise. Our capital allows us to meet financial obligations, borrow funds when appropriate, and absorb any losses in the rare event they occur.
