  • The amount you wish to invest
  • Your investment horizon (e.g., 3 months, 3 years, 10 years)
  • Your risk appetite, which will also determine your potential return

For a security deposit

If the security deposit is for an individual, they will need to provide the following documents:

Building a banking relationship for the long term

Long-term banking relationships require regular contact. We recommend that you let your advisor know about any upcoming major developments in your business. You can even provide them with regular updates on your business.
And if you run into a problem or spot a potential issue, contact your advisor right away. They will be happy to work with you to find a solution and provide the resources you need to ensure the long-term success of your business.
