BROOKLYN, N.Y., March 14, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- PurePoint® Financial, a hybrid digital bank and division of MUFG Union Bank, N.A. aimed at committed savers, announced today the opening of its newest Financial Center in Brooklyn.
Located in the historic Brooklyn Heights neighborhood at 142 Montague Street, the third PurePoint Financial Center in New York builds upon the momentum from those launched on Park Avenue in Midtown Manhattan and in Scarsdale.
Beginning this week, Brooklynites and those in the surrounding communities will be able to visit the PurePoint Financial Center and enjoy a modern, streamlined and cashless banking experience along with a relaxed setting and hospitality area. Clients will also enjoy market-leading rates on savings accounts and certificates of deposit (CDs), no monthly fees, and knowledgeable savings professionals who are available to answer questions about FDIC insurance1 and how best to save.
"Brooklyn is its own hub within the financial capital of the world, and we wanted to be sure all five boroughs were able to build their savings at location that makes sense for their 24/7 lives," said Pierre P. Habis, President of PurePoint Financial. "We've established great relationships in New York and are excited to help this community get to work on their savings goals."
PurePoint was launched in February 2017 to provide committed savers with what they want –– market-leading rates, the convenience and around-the-clock access that comes from banking online and the ability to meet with a savings professional in-person when needed. The hybrid digital bank has continued to offer a unique savings experience tailored to the evolving needs of consumers and emphasizing service to their clients and local communities. PurePoint exclusively offers savings accounts and CDs, and new online accounts can be opened within six minutes and funded from a mobile device.
"We've built a strong base of committed savers in and around New York City, and look forward to putting down roots and making similar connections in Brooklyn Heights," said Eliane Tchikanda, director and New York market executive for PurePoint Financial.
