1-4 Family Home Loans Take 154 Year Old Bank Down

The two offices of Slavie Federal Savings Bank, Bel Air, Maryland, were closed with Bay Bank, FSB, Lutherville, Maryland, to assume all of the deposits. Founded April 4, 1900, the bank had 29 full time employees as of March 31, 2014, at their original office in Bel Air and the office established June 30, 2002 in Baltimore.

This brings Bay Bank to 11 offices in Baltimore City and Baltimore County as well as in Anne Arundel and Harford counties, bring the bank's parent Bay Bancorp to assets in excess of $500 million.

Philip E. Logan has been the President, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board at Slavie Federal Savings Bank since January 2001, according to Bloomberg BusinessWeek. The bank was informed several times to bring its capital up to par, but was unable to do so. Bel Air, Maryland is a town of 10,274, so most of the loans appear to be in Baltimore real estate, which was the downfall of the bank as evidenced by the non-current loans (no loan and interest payments, yet paying interest on deposits) and residential real estate charge offs.
