Client Stories

The dividends on the collaborative partnership have been rewarding!


FinTech Securities prides itself on offering clients the best service, state of the art trading technology and competitive pricing in order to differentiate ourselves from our competition. We saw all of these same attributes in Signature Bank. Especially with Signature Bank being local, service-oriented and not a large financial institution, we’ve enjoyed being treated as an individual and not a number. Having the luxury of picking up the phone and talking to a person by dialing their direct number is important to the FinTech Securities team. Signature offers only products pertinent to our needs; the team makes it a point to be familiar with the idiosyncrasies of each client, and are ready to offer solutions that fit your type of business.

Ralph Black’s Story

Ralph Black

For Ralph Black, his choice to use Signature Bank started with the attractive, competitive pricing, and it quickly became apparent after a few months the way they made him feel was only getting better.

“As a businessman for nearly 30 years I can truly say I have never had a comfort level to this degree with a bank. I have always dealt with local community banks but this one is different. Bank Presidents I’ve encountered tend to put a buffer between their clients and themselves. Not Freddie Deutsch. I have called Freddie on his cell phone at 8:00 at night with a burning question on my mind, and he answered. That’s Freddie, that’s Signature Bank and that’s what we share in common. We want to WOW our clients and it’s clear he holds his team to the same excellence standards I do. We both value our client’s time and strive to deliver the best of the best service in each of our industries. It’s a great feeling to partner with a bank that values your success as much as you do and I almost selfishly want to keep them all to myself.”

Kelley had Designs on a Permanent Office Space

Hint Design

When the time came for Kelley Harris Interiors to acquire some permanent office space, the large bank Kelley was a client of for years could not see the way to provide financing. That was when Kelley followed up on a referral from a friend to try Signature Bank. Like his business philosophy, Kelley wanted to enjoy a personal, customized relationship with a banker who would listen and provide unique solutions. Consistently working with the same core staff throughout the loan transaction provided a level of responsiveness that made him the priority. Kelley has not once regretted his move to Signature Bank; as a matter of fact, he’s referring his friends. Whether furnishing a new office space or furnishing innovative solutions to clients, both Harris Interiors and Signature Bank understand and embrace individuality and the boutique-style defined by seeing every client as uniquely different.

Jamie & Leonardo had the Perfect Restaurant Concept

Restaurant loans are tough, but the SBA lending team at Signature Bank was very gracious, helpful and professional. They not only helped us correctly structure the loan, they were as excited as we were! They are like community cheerleaders for small business. Now we see them and their other clients all the time for lunch – and the partnership continues. They have become family. I’d highly recommend Signature Bank to anyone looking to start or grow a business in Sandy Springs – or anywhere else.

Commitment Laid the Landscape for Don Redmond

Signature’s President, Freddie Deutsch, and every member of his team expressed their genuine interest in my business opportunity from day one. All commitments made by the bank, were met. They didn’t allow the big bank bureaucracy to slow down the process. Our timeline was challenging, but they delivered. I can’t imagine I ever considered another bank.

Dr. Weinstein Couldn’t Keep His Patients Waiting


For 17 years I’ve trusted my banker, Nicole Klein, with my financial needs and having her with a local community bank like Signature ensures she can continue to customize solutions for me. The respect, advice, and responsiveness I receive from Nicole and her team leave me confident that my practice and I are a priority. That kind of individualized attention is hard to come by these days.

Dr. Lavania Had a Brainchild


It was important to have one person I could go to whenever I had questions and Signature’s SBA lending team were extremely helpful. Throughout the process, from beginning to close I felt valued. If you want personal service and fee free checking options with greater lending flexibility, choose Signature Bank.

The overseas market looked promising for my Chinese herbs and supplements business,” said Warren Cargal of Acupuncture Atlanta. “But to make it work, I needed funds to upgrade my website and export infrastructure. That’s where Signature Bank came up with an innovative solution: refinancing current debt with an SBA loan which provided favorable terms that freed up funds to bolster my international sales.

Oscar and Azita Found the Big Banks Weren’t Interested

Oscar and Azita Garrett

Our tile & stone business seemed too small for the big banks. Then someone recommended Signature Bank. Their SBA lending team understands small business. They know time is of the essence – and they went beyond the call of duty to structure a deal that helped us buy the building we had been renting for years. They even showed us how to save money along the way. Having a personal relationship with the SBA team at Signature Bank is one of the best business moves we have made.
