Overview

Bankers Trust Company started in 1917 with its headquarters in Des Moines, Iowa. It manages assets of $4 billion as well as deposits totaling $3 billion, classifying it as a large bank. Bankers Trust Company 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 access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile offerings. Coming in at a commendable 4.3 out of 5 stars, Bankers Trust Company proves it is a great choice and should warrant serious consideration. Bankers Trust Company offers an array banking products, including savings accounts, checking accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, the bank's most basic checking account does not have a monthly charge. Institutions that offer no-fee checking as well as a high interest rate savings account are the best bet for getting the most income from your deposits alongside convenient access to your money.

Bankers Trust Company 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.
