Bank Overview

Bryn Mawr Trust has an overall health grade of "A+" at DepositAccounts.com, with a Texas Ratio of 2.43% (excellent), based on December 31, 2016 data. In the past year, BMT has increased its total deposits by $286.07 million, an excellent annual growth rate of 13.17%. Please refer to our financial overview of Bryn Mawr Trust (FDIC Certificate # 11866) for more details.

The Past – The Bryn Mawr Trust Company was established in 1889, as a companion company to the Bryn Mawr National Bank. The National Banking Acts of 1863 and 1864 did not provide for savings account, with banks only accepting deposits and issuing loans. The Bryn Mawr Trust Company was formed to not only offer interest-bearing accounts, but to also participate in the insurance of land titles and trust business. The two institutions remained separate businesses until they merged in 1954.

The Present – Bryn Mawr Trust is currently Pennsylvania’s 13th largest bank, with assets in excess of $3.3 billion. In January, BMT announced it would be acquiring Royal Bank American, based in nearby Narberth. According to a January 2017 article in philly.com,

The merger, if approved by regulators and Royal shareholders, will add more than $600 million each in loans and deposits, boosting Bryn Mawr's assets above $4 billion and cementing its status as the largest bank based in Philadelphia's western suburbs. Bryn Mawr also manages more than $11 billion in clients' investments.
