Overview

Founded in 2005, ConnectOne Bank has $5 billion in assets and deposits totaling $4 billion, ranking it as a large bank. ConnectOne Bank, whose headquarters are in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, lacks premium access to customer service, 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. On the whole, ConnectOne Bank is a solid contender in your bank search, with a score of 4.2 out of 5 stars from the SmartAsset experts. ConnectOne Bank provides customers with a full array of banking products, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs and mortgage products. It has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, ConnectOne Bank's standard checking does not carry a monthly fee. Locating a checking account with no monthly fee and a savings account with a high interest rate at the same bank is your best option for getting the most income from your deposits while having easy access to your funds.

ConnectOne Bank generally has extremely low fees in comparison to other U.S. banks. With no monthly fee, ConnectOne Bank's checking account is perfect for those who want an easy checking account. ConnectOne Bank unfortunately does not reimburse out-of-network ATM fees, which means you'll have to search for a ConnectOne Bank ATM or eat the fee.

ConnectOne Bank has several deposit products like savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs that provide you with many options to manage your money. ConnectOne Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should consider other options 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. ConnectOne Bank's CD rates are fair compared to the national average.
