Before buying the first bond, I went over their most recent financial report.
There is a branch near me and I noted the "parking-lot-sign" that I've used in the past to buy shares of Wal-Mart.
Sun Trust at one time had a loan on my car and they were pleasant but not TOO pleasant to work with.
I thought they offered significantly less risk than Chase, Citibank or Bank of America.
Northern Trust is another bank with a relatively clean balance sheet.

Best wishes, Chris
