FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)

How Does a First Republic Bank Share Split Work?

A First Republic Bank stock split is no different than any other stock split. First Republic Bank is simply packaging the number of outstanding shares in a different way. For example, in a 2-for-1 split, the amount of shares will double (and the price will be divided by 2, accordingly). Say you have 100 shares of First Republic Bank, then the day of the split you will receive 2 shares for every 1 share you hold in your brokerage account, meaning you will receive 200 shares on the stock split date. However, the price of the stock will reflect this change and your holding of First Republic Bank (in terms of value) will remain practically the same.

Benefits of a First Republic Bank Stock Split?

A stock split does not change the fundamental value of a company. Meaning a First Republic Bank stock split will not make the business more valuable. However, there is a psychological benefit in that the share price will be lower after the split, making shares seem more accessible to everyone and thus temporarily increasing demand and ramping up share prices.
