Pinnacle is Still the No. 1 Bank in Nashville for Deposits, Moves up to No. 3 in Tennessee

FDIC data show the firm grew deposits in vast majority of its markets
September 17, 2019

Pinnacle Financial Partners, Inc. (Nasdaq/NGS: PNFP) is still the No. 1 ranked bank in the Nashville metropolitan statistical area (MSA) in terms of deposit volumes, according to June 30, 2019 data from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC). The firm also moved into the No. 3 spot statewide in Tennessee, up from No. 4 in 2018 and overtaking SunTrust for the honor.

“Nashville’s growth means more money has flowed into our city, which in turn means more capital to invest in the community,” said Terry Turner, Pinnacle’s president and CEO. “During this one-year period, deposits equal to more than a third of the increased deposit totals in the community have been trusted to Pinnacle, a homegrown institution. That’s significant. We believe it reflects that clients think we’re more in tune with who Nashville is and what the city needs than those who have only just recently come here to take advantage of our economic boom.”

Pinnacle grew deposits in its home market by more than 15 percent year-over-year, or $907 million, for a total of more than $9.9 billion at June 30, 2019. That’s 15.47 percent of the area’s total market share. Statewide, Pinnacle grew deposits by nearly $1.3 billion in the same period, or 10.48 percent, for a total of $13.5 billion, which is 8.45 percent of the state’s market share.

“It’s humbling to stand atop a list of 65 financial institutions and know that our friends and neighbors trust us with their money and know that we’ll do the right thing with it,” Turner said.

Across its footprint, Pinnacle grew deposits in 14 out of the 18 MSAs where it operates and which are reported on by the FDIC as of June 30, 2019, including nine with double-digit year-over-year percentage growth. Here are the other market highlights.
