Hancock Holding Company To Open Nasdaq On Friday, May 25
NEW ORLEANS — Executives of Hancock Holding Company, one of America’s strongest, safest financial institutions, will kick off trading at the Nasdaq Marketsite in Times Square, New York, this Friday, May 25 at 8:30 a.m. Central Daylight Time.
Friday’s bell-ringing hails the bank’s ongoing growth as a Gulf South financial services leader. During the ceremony, the financial community will also see the company’s new “Hancock Whitney” brand, built from a 100-year relationship between Gulfport based Hancock Bank and New Orleans based Whitney Bank which began May 25. Hancock and Whitney merged in 2011.
The last time the company opened Nasdaq was August 29, 2015—the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina’s landfall—to honor remarkable recovery along the Gulf Coast in the decade following the infamous storm.
