Welcome to the East West Family!
MetroBank is now East West Bank
We are pleased to share with you that the merger of MetroCorp Bancshares, Inc. (“MetroCorp”) into East West Bancorp, Inc., the parent company of East West Bank (“East West”) has been approved by our regulators and the MetroCorp shareholders.
Our next step is to complete the integration of MetroCorp into East West so that you can seamlessly begin using our wider product and service capabilities and larger branch network. During this time, please continue banking only at MetroBank branches, as your account information will not be accessible at East West Bank branches until May 12, 2014.
We understand that you may have many questions regarding the merger and your accounts at MetroBank. With that in mind, we developed an FAQ to provide answers to some frequently asked questions. You are also welcome to contact your local MetroBank branch for any additional questions you may have.
We welcome you to the East West Bank family and look forward to serving you in the near future.
