ATLANTA, May 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- SunTrust Banks, Inc. (NYSE: STI) today issued the following statement:  

SunTrust supports the rights of all Americans to fully exercise their freedoms granted under the Constitution, including those with respect to free speech and freedom of religion. 

In mid-2013, we consolidated the management of certain residential assets with a third party vendor, which has the relationship with Benham Real Estate.  While we do not publicly comment on specific vendor relationships, we don't make choices on suppliers or base business decisions on political factors, nor do we direct our third party vendors to do so.

We contacted our third party supplier who works with Benham Real Estate regarding our non-discriminatory policies.  As of this afternoon, the issue is resolved and the real estate listings have been reinstated.
