Dear Valued Customer,

In response to the news regarding the banking industry, I wanted to take a few moments to highlight Northrim’s position as a strong, independent community bank.

We have always been measured and balanced in how we approach our banking operations. Our conservative strategy includes strong liquidity and credit quality, exceeding the regulatory requirements of a well-capitalized bank, a diversified investment portfolio and the ability to borrow if needed.

We continue to monitor the environment and adjust our strategy as necessary.

As our mission states, we strive to be Alaska’s most trusted financial institution and are committed to adding value for our customers, communities and shareholders. If you have specific questions about your banking relationship with Northrim please contact us at (907) 562-0062 or (800) 478-2265 or visit for general information.
