BB&T is one of the largest financial services holding companies in the US. As of December 31, 2016, holds $219.3 billion in assets and had a market capitalization of $38.1 billion.
BB&T continues to be a strong net lease asset to hold. While most banks tend to sign ground leases, BB&T typically signs NNN leases. While both leases place zero landlord responsibility on the investor, a NNN lease will carry higher rents than the ground leased counterparts.
Based in Winston-Salem, NC, the company operates 2,196 financial centers in 15 states and Washington, DC. BB&T offers a full range of consumer and commercial banking, securities brokerage, asset management, mortgage and insurance products and services.
A Fortune 500 company, BB&T is consistently recognized for outstanding client satisfaction by the US Small Business Administration, Greenwich Associates and others. BB&T also has been named one of the World's Strongest Banks by Bloomberg Markets Magazine, one of the top three in the US and in the top 15 globally.
