The name change was recently announced by Robert Duncan, president of the financial institution. "Our institution has offered consumer bank services for several years, including checking accounts, automobile and personal loans, mobile home loans --all in addition to the usual sav- ings and loan association ser- vices. Because we offered these consumer banking ser- vices, it is important that we identify ourselves in the marketplace as a bank," Dun- can explained. Prior to the name change, the bank had operated under four different names in dif- ferent parts of the state. In the Bank Board has approved First Magnolia's application to change its name and charter. Technically, after the close of business on Friday, March 16, the savings associa- tion became a federally- chartered mutual savings bank. The corporate structure will remain unchanged. All corporate officers will con- tinue to operate in their previous capacities. "After the name change, the bank will continue to be a member of the Federal Home Loan Bank System and regulated by the Federal Home Loan Bank Board," Duncan explained. There are two other savings banks in Mississippi but Magnolia Federal Bank is by far the largest and most ag- gressive in marketing its financial services. The bank h as been particularly active in promoting checking accounts and variable-rate mortgage loans. Magnolia Federal Bank has about $570 million in assets. "Under our new name, we plan to market an array of financial services to Mississippi families that will be more useful and attractive than those in the market place today," Duncan concluded.
