Overview

Founded in 1986, Bank of Hope has assets totaling $14 billion and $11 billion in deposits, classifying the institution as a very large bank. Bank of Hope, whose headquarters are in Los Angeles, California, lacks premium access to support representatives, with no options for live chat or all-day service. It is a traditional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile apps. Coming in at an average 3.8 stars out of 5, Bank of Hope is a decent bank that leaves room for improvement. Bank of Hope has a full array of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, mortgage products and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. The bank's standard checking product carries a monthly fee of $3.00, which is acceptable compared to other U.S. banks. Finding a checking account with no monthly fee and a savings account with a high interest rate at the same institution is your best bet for getting the most income on your deposits while maintaining easy access to your funds.
