Univest Financial, parent company of Univest Bank and Trust Co., has a long history of serving people and businesses in southeastern Pennsylvania. The Souderton-based bank, which first entered Chester County in 2004 through its Insurance subsidiary, has a rich history that spans 143 years. Today, Univest serves Chester County through a regional office in West Chester and bank branch downtown on High Street.
Diversification of its business has been key to Univest’s long-term success. In addition to traditional banking solutions, it offers insurance, wealth management, mortgage banking, and equipment financing. This range of financial solutions has given Univest strength and stability. The corporation has approximately $5.0 billion in total assets and $3.6 billion in assets under management and supervision through Girard, its wealth management division.
Univest’s evolution as a comprehensive provider of integrated financial solutions has been rooted in the communities it serves. Guided by its philanthropic promise, Univest donated more than $1.9 million to those communities in 2018. It is Univest’s employees who truly bring this spirit of service to life. Together, they volunteered 18,705 hours last year. It is this employee volunteerism and financial support that serve as the foundation of Univest’s Committed To Local philanthropic giving program. In Chester County, Univest is proud to support many nonprofit organizations, including Brandywine Health Foundation, Habitat for Humanity Chester County, Handi-Crafters, and West Chester University.
“One of the best things about Univest is we are local – giving our customers access to local decision makers who live and work right here in the communities we serve,” said Jeff Schweitzer, CEO of Univest Financial Corporation. “This inspires us to live up to our mission of being a strong leader in our markets and active in our communities. Our long history is built on the foundation of five core values (tradition, integrity, excellence, community, and spirituality), and our employees continue to live out these values every day.”
Univest’s more than 840 employees deliver financial solutions through a network of more than 50 offices in southeastern Pennsylvania extending to the Lehigh Valley and Lancaster, as well as in New Jersey and Maryland.
