Once upon a time, when you became an adult, you opened a checking account. No one really gave much thought to their choice of bank, other than location. Now there are so many more options. So. Many. More. Options. Like Goldilocks, how do you know which check account will work the best for you? It’s time to take a look at your lifestyle and ask some basic questions to help you decide.
While each lending situation is unique, many banks utilize some variation of evaluating the “Five C’s of Credit” when making credit decisions: Character, Capacity, Capital, Conditions, and Collateral. We’ll take a look at each of these considerations and how they may impact your funding request. Review each category and see how you stack up and how a community bank can help you and your business grow.
A community bank is a bank that derives funds and lends to the communities in which it operates–ultimately helping to grow the local economy.
Community banking takes the customer experience to another level with added benefits like one-on-one customer service, products that focus on the customer, and active initiatives to promote community growth. We’re about more than numbers, we’re about relationships with our customers and being a resource in our hometowns. With Standard Bank, you’ll find our associates are long-term professionals who really look out for you and go above and beyond their call of duty. We take great pride in serving you.

Standard bank is more than just a financial institution; these are our neighbors, friends, and family. We look out for each other, and know that no matter the situation, I can always call upon them to assist with my needs. I have always had pleasurable experiences with each office I have visited.Regina Hamm, CPA LaVale
My experience, with what was then Allegheny Valley Bank, goes back to 1989 when I started my small business a block away from the main office on Butler Street in Lawrenceville. I was treated with respect and was given a small loan to start my business. Since then, I have had numerous mortgages, business lines of credit, business and personal checking accounts, and since the merger, Standard Bank continues to earn my trust and business. I highly recommend Standard Bank to everyone I know.Kelly Custom Furniture and Cabinetry Lawrenceville
Banking with Standard is much better than banking with one of the larger banks in our city. The more intimate atmosphere ensures that every time I walk in, I’m greeted by name. I never feel rushed, and I feel like my business actually matters.Rosen, Louik & Perry, P.C. Downtown Pittsburgh
