Third Coast converts to a Texas Banking Association

Third Coast Bank SSB, which is currently a state savings bank chartered and regulated by the Texas Department of Savings and Mortgage Lending, received approval to convert to a Texas banking association, effective March 13, 2024. Upon conversion, Third Coast Bank will be regulated by the Texas Department of Banking.

Why does Third Coast Bank want a charter change?
