Company Profile

Who We Are

Based in Westbury, NY, New York Community Bancorp, Inc. is the parent of a New York State-chartered bank – New York Community Bank. At September 30, 2018, the Company had assets of $51.2 billion, deposits of $30.3 billion, and stockholders’ equity of $6.8 billion.

Our bank subsidiary features a divisional structure. New York Community Bank serves customers through 253 branches encompassing eight divisions: Queens County Savings Bank, Roslyn Savings Bank, Richmond County Savings Bank, Roosevelt Savings Bank, and Atlantic Bank in New York; Garden State Community Bank in New Jersey; Ohio Savings Bank in Ohio; and AmTrust Bank in Florida and Arizona.

Our History

The Company was incorporated as Queens County Bancorp, Inc. on July 20, 1993 to serve as the holding company for Queens County Savings Bank which, on April 14, 1859, was the first savings bank chartered by the State of New York in the New York City Borough of Queens. Our conversion to stock form subsequently took place on November 23, 1993.

On November 21, 2000, in anticipation of expanding beyond our then-current market, we changed our name to New York Community Bancorp, Inc. We have since grown through nine traditional mergers and two FDIC-assisted transactions; today our branch network includes locations in New York, New Jersey, Ohio, Florida, and Arizona.

What We Do

New York Community Bancorp, Inc. is a leading producer of multi-family loans for portfolio in New York City, with an emphasis on non-luxury rent-regulated buildings that feature below-market rents. At the end of September, our multi-family loan portfolio totaled $29.6 billion, representing 74.2% of total held-for-investment loans.

We offer a wide range of financial products and services for individuals and businesses, and operate our branches with an emphasis on convenience with 24-hour ATM banking available at 245 locations and 210 branches open at least six days a week. Our customers also have 24-hour access to their accounts with online banking, mobile banking, and banking by phone.
