OREGON BANKS Investing in the Communities we Serve Cornerstones of our Communities iNvEStiNG iN thE COmmunitiES wE SERvE OREGON I t’s no secret that America is in the midst of economic BANKS turmoil. But what may surprise some people is that traditional banks – the 58 depository institutions that make small business loans and personal loans and provide a safe repository for Oregonians’ savings – are not the root of the problem. Many news reports have blamed “banks” for the credit crisis; the truth is, the institutions at the center of the meltdown – such as Lehman Brothers, AIG, Bear Stearns, Fannie Mae and the like – are or were not banks. And while traditional banks doing business in Oregon are impacted by current economic conditions, they are as a whole the solution to today’s financial industry challenges. While traditional banks come in all shapes and sizes, they all have one thing in common: they are the main source of capital in their local communities. Although times are tight, banks continue to lend, proving to their customers that they are worthy of trust and will do everything possible to support economic prosperity in their communities.

This is in sharp contrast to lending trends during other recessions. Typically, loan growth shrinks as loan demand falls, but during the current recession, traditional banks have actually experienced an expansion in business lending. In 2008, for example, business loans expanded by 11 percent, and consumer loans expanded by 9 percent. However, loan demand appears to have declined in 2009 due to the current recession. Although traditional banks have been lending throughout Oregon, they cannot offset the dramatic decline of credit outside of the banking industry. Many do not realize that traditional bank lending today accounts for less than 30 percent of all credit in the U.S., whereas 30 years ago, banks provided about 60 percent of all credit. The collapse this past year of the secondary markets for mortgages and other consumer credit products has taken out an important pipeline of credit. Thus, the stories about the lack of credit are due to the weakness of non-bank lenders and the securitization markets, not the traditional banking sector. Banks are committed to seeing their communities through this economic crisis. It is the credit extended by traditional banks that has allowed many businesses to move forward and meet their payrolls and make payments to their suppliers, even during these challenging times.

Page 4 nO BailOut FOR OREgOn BankS It’s important to understand that traditional banks are built on relationships with the communities they serve, backed by relationships they have with their federal and state regulators. These relationships are based on trust and a focus on fundamentals that keep banks safe and sound. Moreover, typical banks have not received bailouts. They don’t need them because most traditional banks have steered clear of the financial instruments that led to the insolvency of entities like AIG. Moreover, bank lending practices are regulated much more stringently than those of a brokerage or investment bank. Some Oregon banks have opted to accept capital in the form of a preferred stock investment – paying dividends to the federal government – under the Treasury’s new Capital Purchase Program. These healthy banks are using this capital investment to support new lending and increase stability in the marketplace. These funds – accepted by a handful of banks to date – are a benefit to Oregon communities. They are not bailout funds, and the government will make money over the life of the investment. SPEaRhEading Small BuSinESS gROwth Many believe that our economic recovery rests on the ability of small businesses to launch and thrive. According the U.S. Small Business Administration, 60 to 80 percent of net new jobs each year are created by small businesses. These entities receive 65 percent of their loans from commercial banks and other depository institutions. As of June 2008, 34 million outstanding commercial and industrial loans to small businesses nationwide totaled $337 billion; 1.8 million commercial real estate loans to small businesses totaled an additional $375 billion in the same period. Oregon banks play a particularly important role in helping small businesses thrive. A recent survey reflecting data from only a portion of Oregon banks shows more than 22,000 loans of $100,000 or less were made to small businesses across the state in 2007. In fact, these same loans represent 78 percent of all the loans banks reported making to Oregon small businesses. Oregon banks will continue to lend to small businesses, helping to lead us to greater economic security. Page 5 a mORE RESPOnSiBlE aPPROaCh tO dOiNG BuSiNESS Throughout the current economic storm, traditional banks – including the 38 banks headquartered in Oregon – have remained committed to their core business: making loans and providing Oregonians with a safe, reliable place to deposit their funds. Individuals and businesses in our communities entrust banks with their money in the form of certificates of deposit, savings and checking accounts. These deposits are federally insured, and the banks in turn loan these funds back out to individuals and small businesses in their communities. Oregon’s banks answer to Main Street, not Wall Street; our highly regulated business model is based on a holistic relationship with the depositors and borrowers in our communities. invESting in thE COmmunitiES wE SERvE In addition to employing approximately 20,000 Oregonians, banks continue to be the primary institutions for saving, lending and financing economic growth in Oregon’s communities. In this important role, banks are well-poised to fuel our economic recovery. But beyond a financial services role, Oregon bankers are committed to making the places they live and work the best they can be. A recent survey of Oregon banks showed their charitable donations made right here in Oregon were well in excess of $11 million, supporting everything from Habitat to Humanity to the American Cancer Society to Meals on Wheels. On a more personal level, the employees of Oregon banks reported donating nearly 135,000 hours of their time as volunteers, often serving on the boards and committees of local non-profit organizations. Whether it’s delivering meals to homebound seniors or pitching in to build affordable housing, Oregon bankers are moved to give back to the community. Why? Because it’s their community too. In the pages that follow, we’ve highlighted some special tales of giving by banks around Oregon. They illustrate a few of the unique ways Oregon banks go beyond offering checking accounts and lines of credit to serving as true cornerstones of their communities.
