2007 and the years immediately following were tough times in the economy, but turned out to be a great time to start a bank. When the Great Recession hit, the experienced bankers at Settlers bank were able to take their clean balance sheet and help businesses and families at a time when few banks were able or willing to lend. People needed fast decisions and simple solutions. No nonsense banking. We built our brand around these ideals.
Fast forward to today. Our clients tell us that what we did for them then is what they had always wanted from their bankers. Fast answers and simple solutions. Bankers are helpful as long as they don’t slow you down. Our clients value our local decision making and our local board of directors. We can turn questions around in days instead of weeks.
At Settlers bank, we understand that busy people do not want to be required to visit their bank, but they want to be able to have access to their banker. For this reason online banking, bill pay, text alerts, and remote deposit capabilities keep our clients in their homes or offices doing what they do best. Clients are always welcome to visit us, but mostly we plan to come to you…electronically or in-person.
