Overview

Esquire Bank first started operating in 2006 with headquarters in Garden City, New York. It has assets of $533 million along with deposits totaling $468 million, classifying it as a medium-size bank. Esquire Bank lacks premium access to customer service, 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 offerings. We ranked Esquire Bank at a 4.2 stars out of 5, which means it is a great choice and should warrant serious consideration. Esquire Bank offers a full array of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and mortgage products. It has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. The bank's standard checking account features a monthly fee of $7.50, which places it at the higher end of monthly fees. Finding a bank with no-fee checking, in addition to a high interest rate savings account is the best option for getting the highest income on your deposits alongside convenient access to your funds.

SmartAsset Average: 4.4

Esquire Bank generally has average fees compared to the national average. At $7.50 per month, Esquire Bank's checking account is less than the best product for those who need an easy checking account. For those who will need cash in a pinch, Esquire Bank is perfect because it has no out-of-network ATM fees. Additionally, it has an overdraft fee of $32.00, which is less than that of other U.S. banks. Esquire Bank does not refund out-of-network ATM charges, meaning you will have to find an Esquire Bank ATM or pay the ATM charge.

Monthly Fee $7.50 National Average: $3.21
Non-network ATM Fee $0 National Average: $1.20
Overdraft Fee $32.00 National Average: $35.00

Esquire 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. Esquire Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should consider looking elsewhere for banks that deliver more return for your money.
