With 20 branch offices in the greater Hartford area, it is an important growth market for KeyBank, and one where we are committing significant commercial and consumer resources to fuel that growth. MetroHartford Alliance is a key business accelerator in the capital region with more than 1,000 businesses, municipalities and organizations among its membership ranks, and we greatly value our strategic partnership with the Alliance and its investors.
