Banking With Quontic Will Help Your Campaign

Vice President Michael Serao of Quontic Bank specializes in political candidates banking needs.

Many candidates have always asked my advice on where to do their campaign banking and my answer has always been Quontic Bank.

Navigating the quagmire of campaign finance regulations is not an easy task, and some will say it’s near impossible. Without the right expertise the fine print is often overlooked, which could lead to costly fines and penalties – even disqualification from matching funds. What can a campaign do? Corporate banks are notorious for being impersonal and are not equipped to handle the special needs of political banking in New York City. Could you imagine a representative from Citigroup or J.P Morgan taking calls at midnight? Or showing up to your fundraiser to ensure compliance with federal, city, and state law? What if there’s an emergency, do you have your corporate banker’s cell phone number? With the hectic pace of politics, corporate culture can be too impersonal, often impractical to reach campaign goals and more often than not becomes an unwelcome distraction rather an asset. Quontic Bank has taken a unique approach to fill this need with one-on-one personalized banking especially suited for the needs of political candidates and organizations.

When candidates bank with Quontic, they will have confidence that their specialized and attentive staff is extremely well versed in NYC campaign finance, which sets them apart from competitors. Their staff will work directly with your treasurer and will even come to your fundraiser to ensure compliance with your contributions. But Quontic is not just for veteran politicians (whom often retain them after victory) first time candidates and organizations have also come to appreciate the personal interaction, real service, and a masterful knowledge of the field that Quontic staff like Vice-President Michael Serao brings to each one of his clients. It’s the type of advantage you need to win. Civic and advocacy groups like 501 c(3)’s and 501c(4)’s will also benefit from banking with Quontic. Perhaps you are in charge of a prestigious non-profit group, a political action committee, or just a startup organization. Maybe it’s time to entrust your banking needs to someone with experience in this field. So, when you’re gearing up for the big one in 2013 and you want a fighting chance; don’t let banking become a roadblock for your campaign. Call Quontic today. With two convenient locations in Astoria and Great Neck plus surcharge free ATM’s, insiders agree, Quontic is the clear choice for banking in politics.
