Washington, D.C.

Founded in 1834, Hingham Institution for Savings is one of America’s oldest banks and one of the oldest banks operating in Washington, D.C..  Hingham is one of the few family-run banks left in Washington.

The Bank provides commercial mortgage, personal and commercial deposit banking, as well as portfolio residential mortgages from its offices in Georgetown near the C&O Canal.  With a portfolio of well over $1 billion in greater Washington, we are an active commercial real estate lender, with a focus on stabilized multifamily properties.  We also provide owner-occupant commercial real estate financing for our nonprofit clients.

Our Specialized Deposit Group has a particular focus on commercial real estate investors, property managers, professional services firms, investment firms, and nonprofits, including trade associations.  This group also provides personal banking services and portfolio residential mortgage lending.

Our commitment to Washington runs deep, as several principals of the Bank lived in Washington and maintain close personal ties to the city.  We are proud of our commitment to affordable housing in the District and we were an early investor in the Washington Housing Initiative, an innovative solution for the preservation and creation of workforce housing in the metropolitan Washington area.

If you are interested in exploring how we might work together on a commercial real estate project, please contact Jeff Geifman from our Commercial Lending Group.  If we can help meet the banking needs of your business or nonprofit, please contact Selam Eyassu from our Specialized Deposit Group.

If you are a talented, experienced commercial real estate lender or banker and are an interested in joining our team, contact our President and Chief Operating Officer, Patrick Gaughen, at [email protected].  We promise a confidential and direct conversation about what we do and look forward to meeting you.
