What is a "community bank?"


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.
