Overview

Choice Financial Group Bank was founded in 1906 with headquarters located in Fargo, North Dakota. It manages $1 billion in assets and $1 billion in deposits, ranking it as a medium-size bank. Choice Financial Group lacks premium access to support representatives, with no options for live chat or all-day service. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank with access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile apps. We ranked the bank at a 4.2 stars out of 5, suggesting Choice Financial Group is a great choice and should warrant serious consideration. Choice Financial Group provides customers with multiple banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, CDs, IRAs and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. Banks that offer no-fee checking, in addition to a high interest rate savings account are the best option for gaining the most income on your deposits while maintaining easy access to your funds.

Choice Financial Group Bank has several deposit products including savings accounts, checking accounts and CDs that provide you with many options to manage your money. Choice Financial Group does not have the best savings rate, which means you should think about looking 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. Choice Financial Group's CD rates are fair as compared against the national average.
