Astra Bank has been serving the community since 1911. More than a hundred years later, if there’s one thing that remains the same as it was back then is our commitment to customer service excellence. One of the questions we asked Richard Campbell, our Chairman in a recent chat was about what has helped the bank to be successful through the changing times and economic conditions. Richard’s answer was simple: “Good old-fashioned values.”
The marketing team here at Astra Bank recently chatted with Richard Campbell, Chairman of our bank. We asked him a few questions and Richard spoke to us at length about the history and his times with the bank. In a succinct series of blog posts, we are excited to share with you some excerpts from this chat. You’ll read about interesting anecdotes and trace the traditions and roots of a bank deeply rooted in service to the community. We’ll take you through the significant changes that have impacted the banking and financial services industry and how you as customers have always remained the steadfast focus of our operations.
As they say... "Tis the Season" and it's that time of year again. All of us here at Astra Bank are excited about our upcoming Open House events and hope you're able to make it. Depending on the location, you'll be able to enjoy hot cocoa or spiced cider along with a variety of holiday treats.

Even as banks promote e-Statements and the convenience of Internet transactions, concern about online security has some customers still holding off from e-Banking. Protecting your information and transactions is high priority for most financial institutions and they have implemented advanced security measures to reduce the risk of fraudulent activities. However, as a customer you have an equal role to play in ensuring safe banking.

As a bank, we can’t help think about it... we are in the money business. Yes, green is indeed the color of money and don’t we all crave to see more of it? BUT, there is a bigger, more worthy and universally beneficial “green” that we need to strive for; and that is contributing to save the environment and our beautiful planet.
