Its activity has been the origination of commercial real estate and business loans, leases, and residential mortgages to customers located within its market areas. Consistent with its long-term customer relationship development, it generally retains the servicing rights on residential mortgage loans that it sells which results in monthly service fee income to it. The Company also originates and retains in its various types of home equity and consumer loan products. It originates commercial real estate loans secured predominantly by first liens on apartment houses, office buildings, shopping centers, and industrial and warehouse properties. Commercial business loans includes business term loans, letters of credit, and lines-of-credit issued to small and medium size companies in its market areas, some of which are secured in part by additional owner occupied real estate. The Company's bi-weekly mortgages feature an accelerated repayment schedule and are linked to a deposit account to facilitate payments. It offers fixed-rate, fixed-term, monthly and bi-weekly home equity loans, and prime-based home equity lines of credit in its market areas.

The Company's specialized lending consists of commercial leases and insurance premium financing. It offers insurance products and consulting services to help both its retail and commercial customers achieve their financial goals. The Company is subject to extensive federal and state regulation and supervision.
