Regions Bank (NYSE:RF) is stepping up its efforts to help consumers and
business owners focus on their financial fitness. Every Friday during the
month of January, select Regions Bank locations across 16 states will host
in-branch financial fitness events covering a wide range of important topics
such as budgeting, borrowing, identity protection, investing, estate planning
and more. More information about Financial Fitness Fridays, including a list
of participating locations, is available at

“Through events like these, as well as a whole range of other tools, resources
and personal advice we provide, we’re encouraging people of all ages and life
stages to take the steps to ensure their long term financial success,” said
John Owen, head of Business Lines for Regions Bank. “Providing this important
guidance and information is vital to helping individuals and businesses make
more informed financial decisions that are good for our customers as well as
their families, employees, and communities.”

As another part of its company-wide commitment to financial advice, guidance
and education, Regions is also expanding its popular My GreenGuide online
financial resource center to help people save, plan, and make smarter
financial decisions. My GreenGuide, an online financial resource center, is
available at and features tips, advice, articles, and
calculators on a variety of financial topics, including:

  *Buying a home or car
  *Finding loan assistance
  *Preparing for college and paying off student loans
  *Planning for retirement
  *Elder abuse
  *Dealing with unexpected expenses
  *Disaster resources

In addition to events such as Financial Fitness Fridays and tools such as My
GreenGuide, Regions Bank works closely with community partners and non-profit
organizations to provide financial education resources to students and adults.
As an example, since 2010 Regions Bank has worked with Everfi, a leading
education technology company, to provide free online financial education
courses to students and Regions Bank customers through the Regions Financial
Learning Center. Customers interested in taking advantage of this
complimentary financial education program are encouraged to visit any Regions
Bank branch to receive information on the Regions Financial Learning Center,
along with a personalized code to access the training online.
