Largest Financial Institutions in the Region

Monday, May 14, 2007

Many of the region's banks watched their profit margins get squeezed by customers pushing for higher rates on deposits and lower rates on loans. Expansion slowed but it didn't come to a complete halt. Alexandria's Burke & Herbert opened a branch in Annandale, Virginia Commerce of Arlington opened five, and McLean-based Cardinal Financial stepped out of Northern Virginia to plant its flag in Bethesda. Chevy Chase Bank, the metropolitan area's largest local bank, dwarfed them all in assets and kept getting bigger. It opened 15 branches last year and reached a deal with the University of Maryland to change the name of its sports field to the Chevy Chase Bank Field at Byrd Stadium. Provident Bankshares out of Baltimore moved up to second in size of assets, followed by Sandy Spring Bancorp.
