Overview

Apex Bank first started operating in 1931 with its headquarters in Camden, Tennessee. Apex Bank owns $525 million in assets and deposits totaling $420 million, which makes it a medium-size bank. Apex Bank lacks premium access to support representatives, with no live chat or all-day service options available. It is a traditional brick-and-mortar bank with access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile offerings. At a SmartAsset rating of 4 out of 5 stars, Apex Bank should be near the middle of the pack in your search for a bank. Apex Bank has a full suite of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs and mortgage products. It has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. The bank's standard checking product carries a $5.00 monthly fee, although banks sometimes have requirements that allow you to waive the fee. Institutions that offer no-fee checking and a high interest rate savings account are your best bet for gaining the most income from your deposits while maintaining easy access to your funds.

Fees

4.2
SmartAsset Average: 4.4

On average, Apex Bank charges its customers average fees in comparison to other U.S. banks. At $5.00 per month, Apex Bank's checking account is less than ideal for those who want a hassle-free checking account. For those who frequent the ATM, Apex Bank is good because it has an out-of-network ATM fee of $1.00, which is solid as compared against the national average. Also, at $29.95, Apex Bank has a significantly lower overdraft fee compared to that of other U.S. banks. Apex Bank unfortunately does not refund out-of-network ATM fees, which means you'll have to find an Apex Bank ATM or eat the withdrawal fee.

Monthly Fee $5.00 National Average: $3.21
Non-network ATM Fee $1.00 National Average: $1.20
Overdraft Fee $29.95 National Average: $35.00

Apex Bank offers several deposit products like savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs that provide you with many options to manage your money. Apex Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should consider taking a look elsewhere for banks that deliver more return for your money. CDs can be a terrific option to achieve higher returns, but there are limitations to accessing your money. Apex Bank's CD rates are fair in comparison to other U.S. banks.
