BOSTON-MeroWest Bank has opened a commercial lending office in the heart of Boston’s financial district making it easier for commercial clients in Boston to do business with the bank. The banking office’s new address will be 15 Broad St.

“A larger piece of our portfolio comes from Boston,” says Colleen Hughes, director of corporate marketing and communication for the bank. “We needed to establish a presence in Boston and this location became available.”

Huhges adds that the commercial side of Metrowest’s loan business has been growing steadily over the past few years. “It’s just a lot easier for these companies to make the deals happen,” she notes. “We are right in the financial district.”

The Boston banking office offers clients commercial mortgages and loans, cash management services and other business banking products as well as ATM and electronic nightdrop.
