Sisters Featured in Frontline Documentary, “Abacus: Small Enough to Jail”


December 20, 2019 – This week, New Mexico in Focus speaks with Vera and Chanterelle Sung, whose family owns the Abacus Federal Savings Bank in Manhattan. After the financial collapse a decade ago, relatively tiny Abacus was the only bank to face criminal sanctions. The bank self-reported suspected violations to the authorities, then was stunned by the prosecution that followed. Producer Matt Grubs speaks with two of the daughters of the bank’s founder, who had their story told in the Frontline documentary, “Abacus: Small Enough to Jail.”
