Press Release

Community banks searching for a product that brings Wall Street to Main Street through a fee efficient on-line based investment portal for their customers now have a solution. Richmond based Tone Capital, LLC (Tone) is joining forces with Community Bankers’ Bank to change the way community banks deliver investment advisory services to their customers.

Community Bankers’ Bank (CBB) President G. William Beale offered; “In my conversations with bank management, I find they are sensitive to changing demographics and client resistance to the fee structure of many bank-based financial advisory programs. Tone brings an on-line platform that can guide savers of all types into the best investment options at a fraction of the cost of most bank-based programs and Brokerage operations. We are looking forward to a great partnership.”

Tone Capital, LLC Principal Hunter H. Irby added; “With over 140 years of combined industry experience, our management team’s approach to investment advice is service-oriented and tailored to each client’s individual goals. Our independent and fiduciary-standard model places our clients’ interests first and empowers them with the transparency they deserve. We look forward to continuing this mission with CBB, its partner banks, and their valued customers.”
