First Trade Union Bank to Become "Radius Bank"

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Sep 26, 2014) - First Trade Union Bank (the "Bank") today announced that it will be changing its name to Radius Bank by October 31, 2014. The Bank's holding company, First Trade Union Bancorp, has changed its name to Radius Bancorp, effective immediately. Clients can expect to see a new corporate logo, website, marketing materials and social media presence in connection with the name change.

The new Radius Bank name is reflective of the evolution taking place within the financial services industry, as consumers and businesses alike are increasingly seeking a banking partner that provides access to their accounts anytime, anywhere.
