Kearny Bank. For Today. For Tomorrow.

Kearny Bank is a community bank founded in 1884 as a New Jersey mutual building and loan association. The association obtained federal insurance of accounts in 1939 and received a federal charter in 1941. In February 2015, Kearny Bank changed its name from Kearny Federal Savings Bank to Kearny Bank. Kearny Bank is wholly owned by Kearny Financial Corp. (the “Company”), a Maryland corporation organized as a fully public holding company. Today the Company has assets of $4.50 billion. Kearny Bank’s deposits are insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation.

A strong resolve by Kearny Bank’s Board of Directors and management team to remain true to sound, conservative business practices and attentiveness to local customer needs has resulted in steady growth over the years. With a retail branch network of 42 locations, the Bank's footprint now covers eleven counties including: Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Middlesex, Morris, Monmouth, Ocean, Passaic, and Union counties in New Jersey and Kings and Richmond counties in New York. Kearny Bank has prospered through organic growth, through the acquisition of five banks and the purchase of deposits. Our latest acquisition, Atlas Bank in June 2014, increased Kearny Bank’s branch network by adding two branches in Brooklyn and Staten Island, New York, to our existing New Jersey locations.

Kearny Bank's state of the art 53,000 square foot corporate headquarters, which is centrally located in Fairfield, New Jersey, opened its doors in September 2004. The building houses the Company’s and Kearny Bank’s administrative functions and operations. The building is designed to accommodate the anticipated future growth of the organization.

A noteworthy moment in the life of Kearny Bank occurred in February 2005 when a two-tiered public mutual holding company was formed and 30% of its common stock was sold to the public. The stock offering raised capital to help finance Kearny Bank’s expansion and provided employees and depositors with an opportunity to join in Kearny Bank's success. In May 2015, the Company completed a significant stock offering and related conversion from a mutual holding company to a stock holding company form of organization. The “second step” subscription and community offering process provided depositors, existing stockholders and residents of the communities served by Kearny Bank another opportunity to participate in Kearny Bank’s future success. The offering was oversubscribed in the community offering, an indication of how the public viewed the Company’s potential. Approximately 93.5 million shares of the Company’s common stock were outstanding after completion of the offering and conversion.
