Overview

Golden Bank first started operating in 1985 with headquarters located in Houston, Texas. Golden Bank manages $806 million in assets as well as $648 million in deposits, classifying it as a medium-size bank. Golden Bank 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, Golden Bank is an acceptable bank choice, but may leave you wanting more, with a rating of 3.7 stars out of 5 from our team. Golden Bank has a complete suite of banking products, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and mortgage products. Golden Bank has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. Locating a checking account with no monthly fee as well as a savings account with a high APY at the same bank is the best option for accruing the most income from your deposits while having convenient access to your money.

Golden 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. Golden Bank 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. Golden Bank's CD rates are fair as compared against the national average.
