Strengthened Compliance Management System Contributes to Release from Consent Order


WILMINGTON, Del., (November 24, 2020) – The Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: TBBK), announced today that the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the prudential regulator of The Bancorp Bank (Bank), has terminated its Consent Order with the Bank principally related to consumer compliance and third-party risk management.
