December 2011 E-News Bulletin

Welcome to the Franklin Financial Network October/November 2011 Market Update!

Dear Friends,
Christmas Greetings from Franklin Synergy Bank! In the spirit of the Christmas season, we reflect on the many blessings God has bestowed upon us. Among these blessings, we count your friendship and your patronage. You make our jobs a pleasure.
The coming of a new year reminds us to pause to remember the milestones our bank achieved in 2011. Chief among them for our bank were the opening of our Brentwood office, the addition of our new Franklin Synergy Investment Management division and our renewed commitment to small business lending. We also want to note the milestones marked in your life, so many of which you share with us. We delight in the many joys in your life and we hope to provide a place of comfort during times of need.
We are very proud of our team at Franklin Synergy. Each of our team members were selected specifically for their talent as well as a caring attitude. I enjoy coming to work every day and I expect no less for each member of our team. We are very fortunate to be able to make a positive difference in the lives of our customers.
Banking is all about people; it’s not about numbers and accounts and transactions. It’s about your life and who you invite to join you along the way. We are proud that you have chosen the bankers at Franklin Synergy to be part of your journey.
We offer our heartfelt thanks to our shareholders, customers, friends and our community. I would be remiss if I did not express my deep gratitude to our extended family, who make it possible for our officers and staff to bring you the very best in banking. It takes all of us to create a better community and together we can make 2012 a more prosperous and fulfilling year.
May your holiday season and the New Year be filled with much joy, happiness and success. We look forward to serving you in the coming year.
Merry Christmas!
Richard Herrington
