Signature Bank and the Trump’s

USA Today recently ran a story detailing some real estate deals by Jared Kushner or Michael Cohen. The deals were financed by Signature Bank (SBNY), a member of our Buy List.

I want to make it clear that SBNY merely financed these deals. This doesn’t mean they organized the deals. USA Today describes Signature as a “bank tied to the Trump family.” That’s disingenuous. Ivanka Trump was on their board from 2011 to 2013. Barney Frank, hardly a Trump fan, is currently on the board.
