Overview

Established in 1995, Capitol Bank has $361 million in assets as well as deposits totaling $310 million, which makes the institution a small bank. Capitol Bank, whose headquarters are in Madison, Wisconsin, 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 in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile apps. With a commendable 4.3 stars out of 5, Capitol Bank is a great choice and should warrant serious consideration. Capitol Bank has a complete suite of banking products, which include 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. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, Capitol Bank offers an option without a maintenance or monthly fee. Banks that offer free checking as well as a high interest rate savings account are the best bet for gaining the highest income from your deposits while having convenient access to your money.

Capitol Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should think about taking a look elsewhere for banks that deliver more return for your money.
