Grandpoint Capital, Inc.
About the company
Grandpoint Capital, Inc., is a bank holding company formed in late 2008. The company was organized by a group of banking industry veterans who recognized the need and opportunity to bring fresh capital and client-focused financial services to the market. To fund the privately held enterprise, Grandpoint successfully raised $338 million in committed capital.
Since June 2010, Grandpoint Capital has acquired nine banks: six in California and three in Arizona. At year-end 2012, the bank holding company had four banking subsidiaries -- Grandpoint Bank, Regents Bank, N.A., Bank of Tucson and The Biltmore Bank of Arizona -- and consolidated assets of approximately $2.2 billion. In June 2013, Bank of Tucson was merged into Grandpoint Bank. It retained its name and operates as a division of the Bank. Regents Bank was merged into Grandpoint Bank as a division in September 2013 and retains its name.
