Kitsap Bank is pleased to announce its partnership with Commonwealth Financial Network, the nation’s largest privately-held Registered Investment Advisor- Independent Broker/Dealer. Commonwealth was selected as the new broker/dealer, due to their long history of sound business practices, highly personalized service, and commitment to independence--a philosophy that matches the Bank’s own approach to serving clients.
At the same time, Kitsap Bank has also changed the name of its investment group from Olympic Investment Center to Kitsap Investment Services. While customers will work with the same great team of investment advisors they know and trust, modifications have been made to the logo, as well as the look of the products, services and tools used in investment transactions.
“This is the beginning of a great new relationship,” stated Steve Politakis, Chief Executive Officer. “Commonwealth’s advanced technology and additional resources will strengthen our ability to serve our clients and help to further improve upon the level of expert guidance they have come to expect.”
