Common Questions


What is a community bank?

Community banks are well established financial institutions that operate within the communities they serve. They are small businesses themselves, so they are nimble and responsive to community needs. As high-tech, high-touch lenders that specialize in relationship banking, community banks build better communities by prioritizing and investing in the customers and neighborhoods they serve.

What does “relationship banking” actually mean?

While banking is often seen as a transactional engagement, building a relationship with your local bankers can actually help you down the road. When you need a loan, are buying a house, or starting a business, community bankers know you and your unique circumstances beyond just numbers and can be there for you. Go local to feel local and see the payback over time.
