NEW YORK, March 26, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- StoneCastle Financial Corp. (Nasdaq:BANX), an SEC registered investment company, today announced that CEO Joshua Siegel will present at the 3rd Annual SNL Community Bankers Conference on April 9, at the Four Seasons Resort and Club Dallas at Las Colinas in Irving, Texas.

StoneCastle Financial Corp. was established to make long-term, passive, non-control investments in publicly-traded and privately-held U.S. community banking institutions seeking capital for organic growth, acquisitions, share repurchases and other refinancing activities.

Mr. Siegel will participate in a fireside chat titled "Capital Management: An Investor's View," which, in addition to providing an update on the community banking industry, will detail strategies related to capital access, deployment and management.

"Smaller banks have traditionally lacked access to the same range of financing options available to their larger counterparts," said Mr. Siegel. "The community banking landscape is currently witnessing increased consolidation, necessitating further capital infusions and providing significant investment opportunities. With this in mind, it is more important than ever for community bank executives to understand the expectations and motives driving investment in the industry as a whole."
