Why Bank Local Banner

There are many different banking options trying to get your attention and convince you to trust them with your money. Here's a few reasons why you should bank LOCAL!

1. Local banks often have lower rates than big banks, according to bankrate.com, saving you money. They also have the same convenient banking products, such as bill pay, mobile and online banking, and mobile deposits, as do the big guys. It is a win win for the customer.

2. When you bank at a small community bank, the money you deposit there is being put directly back into your community through loans. For example, when you make a deposit here at Port Richmond Savings, we invest your money into Mr. and Mrs. Smith's house down the street with their mortgage, and the new bakery that just opened around the corner with a small business loan. Did you know that small banks lend over 50% of small business loans? Big banks tend to cater to large businesses and corporations, or else invest their money on Wall Street. The new bakery just hired 5 new employees. Did you know that small businesses create roughly 66% of new jobs? So in effect, when you bank locally, you are investing in your neighborhood and your local job market. When you bank here at Port Richmond Savings, your money is being put right back into the Philadelphia area.

3. At a local bank, the decision makers are usually local guys and gals themselves, so they understand the neighborhood, its culture, and its needs. They too can help folks that may have a harder time getting a loan elsewhere. This is unlike the big guys, where the decision makers are sitting in an office in some other part of the country, using a standardized formula to decide if someone should or should not be given a loan.
