Unit is in a very strong financial position and is unaffected by recent events. We’re well-capitalized with over $100 million in cash, spread across multiple FDIC-insured bank accounts and money market funds. Given the recent developments, Unit will be monitoring this situation and further diversifying its funds if needed.
Unit works with four different partner banks as part of our multi-bank approach to enable companies to go to market quickly, launch new products, and scale: Piermont Bank, Thread Bank, Blue Ridge Bank, Choice Financial Group, and Pacific West Bank; Members FDIC. We are working on multiple additional bank launches in the coming quarters.
Unit’s bank partners have not been impacted by the recent events at SVB. Unit’s bank partners are rooted in local community banking and have a large mix of deposits that sit outside of the fintech ecosystem.
All our partner banks are well-capitalized with capital levels above regulatory requirements, and have well-diversified deposits across different industries, strong balance sheets, and access to additional liquidity if needed.
Financial strength and leadership experience have always been areas of focus as we evaluate new bank partners. We encourage you to reach out to your bank directly with any questions. You can find contact information for each bank below:
