Started in 1901, Frandsen Bank & Trust has assets totaling $2 billion along with deposits totaling $1 billion, making it a large bank. Frandsen Bank & Trust, whose headquarters are in Lonsdale, Minnesota, lacks premium access to support representatives, with no live chat or all-day service options available. 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. At a SmartAsset rating of 4.1 out of 5 stars, Frandsen Bank & Trust should be solidly in contention for your choice of bank. Frandsen Bank & Trust provides customers with a variety of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, Frandsen Bank & Trust's most basic checking does not carry a monthly charge. Locating a checking account with no monthly fee and a savings account with a high APY at the same bank is the best bet for accruing the most income from your deposits while having convenient access to your funds.
