ccording to a press release issued by the FDIC on Sunday in the United States, Flagstar Bancorp, N.A., which is a subsidiary of New York Community Bancorp, has agreed to take over the non-crypto related deposits of the former Signature Bank, now known as Signature Bridge Bank.

The acquisition and assumption agreement will come into effect from Monday, and it marks a significant development in the banking industry. This transaction is expected to have a positive impact on the customers of Signature Bridge Bank, as they will now be able to receive seamless banking services from Flagstar Bancorp, N.A.

This move is also indicative of the dynamic nature of the banking industry, which is constantly evolving to cater to the ever-changing needs of customers.

In a significant development in the banking industry, it has been announced that depositors of Signature Bridge Bank, excluding depositors related to the digital banking business, will now be automatically transferred to Flagstar. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) has confirmed that these depositors will continue to be insured by FDIC up to the insurance limit.

The press release reveals that Flagstar Bank's offer did not encompass the $4 billion deposits that were linked to the digital banking business of the former Signature Bank. Nevertheless, the customers who hold accounts associated with this business will not be affected, as the FDIC will directly provide these deposits to them. This implies that these customers will not experience any disruption in their banking services and will retain access to their deposits.

Signature Bank's decision to sell its non-crypto-related deposits to New York Community Bancorp Unit marks a strategic move for both companies. Signature Bank's focus on cryptocurrency-related businesses has been well-known in recent years, and this move allows the bank to double down on that strategy while also freeing up resources to invest in its core business.
