Best banks for a business account

1 Reply

Does anyone have success with having a business account at a large bank? My partner and I are looking for a bank to store cash as well as create a business bank account. We are hoping for the bank to possibly fund our projects (flip or refinance) at some point as well. Would a small local bank be the better play?

@Effram Barrett Yes, I would recommend a smaller local bank.  You can build a relationship with a banker there.  There is a higher probability that they may be portfolio lenders, which means that they hold onto their loans, instead of sell them.  And, loan approvals are handled by a local committee, which usually includes the banker that you have a relationship with. They usually also have better terms for business accounts regarding the amount of fees they charge.  I have always preferred using smaller banks, and as you can tell, recommend that to anyone.
