3rd Quarter 2019 Shareholder Newsletter

October 2019
As we approach the end of the year and look forward to the holidays, we are grateful for three very good
quarters in both our Banking and TFO divisions. Increased TFO assets under management coupled with continued strong loan growth helped to offset our second interest rate decrease of the year.
Our Growing Team
We are excited to welcome Jessica Koch to our team. Jessica joined Parkside in August as the Executive Administrative Assistant to Jim Wagner and Andrew Hereford. Offering nearly 15 years of experience, she recently supported a variety of senior executives at Centene Corporation. Jessica can be reached at jkoch@pfbt.com or 314.290.8720.

Parkside’s ‘Step It Up Challenge’
As part of Parkside’s ongoing commitment to employee wellness, we recently completed a 30 day step challenge. Encouraging movement as we head into the more sluggish winter months, from September 15th - October 15th, 48 participants utilized personal fitness trackers to record each step. Competing for both individual and team prizes, Parksiders traversed a total of 19,505,140 steps! This equates to approximately 9,753 miles - nearly 40% of the way around the world! Competitive spirit and
teamwork were on full display throughout this fun challenge. Congratulations to all our steppers!

Best In Business Awards: Best in Customer Service
Parkside is proud to have been selected as a 2019 Best in Business finalist by St. Louis Small Business Monthly. SBM’s annual reader survey allowed more than 10,000 individuals to vote for companies in 18 categories. Parkside was recognized as a Best in Customer Service finalist. This recognition aligns with our commitment to deliver first-class service, simplifying and streamlining every experience!

Paint the Date
Thank you to all those who joined us to Paint the Date at another fun Parkside Art Fair Party! Throughout the beautiful summer evening, we welcomed more than 600 clients, colleagues, friends and family - a new record high for attendees! WOW!
The holiday season ahead provides the opportunity to reflect and be thankful for those who have supported Parkside in achieving our goals. We value our relationship with you, thank you for your support and look forward to working with you in 2020 and beyond.
From our family to yours – we wish you a safe and happy holiday season.
