What We Do

BancList (formerly Community Bank List) helps shareholders of privately held financial institutions communicate with each other while eliminating the risk that banks face when they engage in sensitive discussions about shares with some, but not all, stockholders. Our easy-to-use online platform (www.banclist.com) lets users browse notices of intent to buy or sell shares of privately held stock that shareholders post on our site. Users who are not shareholders can also post their own notices of intent to buy or sell shares.


Privately held institutions don’t need to go public to communicate efficiently with their shareholders and prospective shareholders. BancList gives banks and their shareholders a formal shareholder communication platform. BancList’s online platform is the practical solution for privately held banks that want to avoid potentially serious liability, including the violation of Fair Disclosure rules. Banks that use BancList’s shareholder communications platform no longer need to maintain a private list of a few shareholders to conduct transactions. BancList lets banks give their shareholders access to a platform that takes the bank out of the sensitive pricing negotiation process while providing shareholders a platform for liquidity opportunities.


How We Got Started

The company was launched in December 2009 by David Bourne and Vince Caine. David was a successful businessman who wanted to invest in privately held community bank stocks. Vince Caine, an experienced investment management professional, developed the concept of an online communications platform. They developed the original shareholder posting platform after considerable research and development efforts that included extensive discussions with the SEC and other regulatory agencies.


Community Bank List became BancList in 2015 after a new ownership team stepped in with the goal of expanding the platform to allow every privately held financial institution in the U.S. to provide a transparent marketplace for its shareholders and prospective shareholders to communicate with each other.


BancList gives banks a formal shareholder communications process with the added benefits of helping them track all activity on their BancList site. Banks can make their site available to shareholders and non-shareholders or they can limit access to their site to shareholders of record and other authorized users.
