New York-based M&T Bank Corp. said the bank would increase security at certain branches as its top executive and other firms condemned Saturday’s racist attack in the city.

“We will not allow one man to break the bonds that hundreds of thousands have forged,” M&T CEO Rene Jones, who is one of finance’s few senior Black executives, said Monday in an emailed statement. “Instead, we will stand together with our friends and neighbors when they need us most.”
