In April 1942 the association changed its name to Investors Savings and Loan Association. Although the association was smaller than the rival Millburn Building & Loan Association, after enactment of new savings and loan laws in New Jersey, Investors was able to purchase the Millburn Association's assets in July 1942 to bring total assets to $2 million.

Beginning in 1977, a series of nine acquisitions helped Investors Bank grow into the third largest bank in New Jersey, with assets in excess of $18.7 Billion.
