SunTrust financial security
The 2008 housing crisis had a big impact on SunTrust, and the U.S. government’s bank stress tests asked the bank to raise $2.2 billion to boost its capital. Florida and Georgia had two of the highest rates of foreclosure, and many of these were SunTrust loans. However, SunTrust raised the necessary funds and continues to offer banking and lending services to its customers. Check out SunTrust Bank’s Safe & Sound rating on Bankrate.com.
