Tight money and very competitive financial markets made the past
year a difficult one for all financial institutions. Standard Federal
however, ended the year with assets totalling $338,183,084., a $6,218,928
increase over last year. Savings accounts reached a new high of
$301,901,661. and total mortgages are now $294,743,507. Reserves are
a new high of $24,146,228., and this represents 8% of our savings.
Dividend rate regulation became a fact in September, 1966 and
Standard Federal elected to pay, beginning October 1st, the highest
legal rate permitted on insured regular passbook accounts in the
metropolitan Detroit area, 4%%, paid and compounded quarterly.
By action of Congress, all accounts are now insured up to $15,000 by
the Federal Savings and Loan Insurance Corporation, an agency of the
United States government.
During 1966 we extended our services by opening new branches in
Southfield and in Warren. We also improved our services by building
a new, larger office at Kelly Road and Houston Whittier. In 1967 we
plan to still further improve our services by replacing our current
structure at Grand River and Southfield with a fine new building to be
erected on the present parking lot.
Indications are that 1967 will be an excellent year for our economy.
National and local economic conditions should remain strong and the
financial market should be more orderly with money not as tight as in
1966. All in all, we at Standard Federal look forward to a year of
continued activity and growth.
