"As part of CIT, the Community Association Banking business is poised for growth and continuing to offer innovative solutions that deliver value."
The new HOA Premium Reserve Solution is composed of four account options that meet the needs of a wide range of homeowner associations and community management companies.
These new accounts include:
- Premium Sweep Account combining a competitive interest rate, daily access to funds and no limits on withdrawals.
