Overview

Established in 2007, CrossFirst Bank has $3 billion in assets along with $2 billion in deposits, which makes it a large bank. CrossFirst Bank, whose headquarters are in Leawood, Kansas, 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 apps. Overall, CrossFirst Bank is a superb bank that you should seriously consider, with a rating of 4.6 stars out of 5 from our experts. CrossFirst Bank offers the full package of product offerings, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs and IRAs. CrossFirst Bank has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, the bank's most basic checking does not have a monthly charge. Finding an institution with no-fee checking and a high savings APY is your best bet for returning the highest income from your deposits while maintaining easy access to your money.

CrossFirst Bank has several deposit products including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs to give you many options to manage your money. CrossFirst 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. CDs can be a terrific option to achieve higher returns, but there are limitations to accessing your money. CrossFirst Bank's CD rates are fair compared to the national average.
