5 Benefits of Banking Locally

Since 1964, our goal at Fremont Bank has been to offer personalized service to each and every client. We care about each person that comes through our doors and make every effort to provide the resources and services to help clients make informed financial decisions. It’s all part of being a community bank that strives to make our communities even better places to live.

In this post, we’re sharing five benefits of community banks for personal and business banking.

1. Unparalleled Customer Service

There’s nothing like walking into a local business and having everyone know you by name. At a community bank, you’ll be more than just your account number. When you stop in to make a deposit, you’ll be greeted with the friendly faces of people who genuinely want to get to know you and your banking needs.

2. All the Convenience, Less of the Headaches

With technology becoming an important part of the banking industry, community banks have made huge strides in providing online and mobile banking services. You’ll still have many of the same robust online and mobile banking benefits of a larger bank but with the added benefit of knowing you can go into your local branch, served by employees who know and will take the time to give you the personalized service you won’t find at a big bank.

3. Flexible Solutions

Without regulations and strict guidelines coming from major headquarters, smaller banks have more freedom to be flexible with policies and procedures. Community banks have the best interest of their clients and the community in mind. With this more flexible and personal approach to banking, you can be sure that you’re getting competitive rates, excellent service, and the information you need to make smart financial decisions.

4. Personalized Service

A major benefit of small banks vs. large banks is the personalized experience that each and every client receives. At a community bank, you can stop in to sit down one on one with financial experts, to learn about the services and offers available and to ask any questions you might have. Unlike the cookie cutter approach of big banks, community banks offer customized solutions for individuals.

5. Supporting the Community

As the label suggests, community banks exist to be a benefit to the community. By choosing a community bank, you’re investing in the area where you work, shop, live, and raise your family. In return, your bank does the same. Community banks help local businesses to grow and thrive.

If you want to support your community while receiving personal, flexible services, a community bank might be a great option for you. Visit one of our branch locations, or give us a call at 800-359-BANK (2265) to learn more.
