Overview

Our Rating: 4.1/5 How we calculated this rating

Horizon Bank was founded in 1873 and its headquarters are located in Michigan City, Indiana. Horizon Bank owns assets totaling $4 billion and deposits totaling $3 billion, making it a large bank. Horizon Bank does not have the access to customer service other banks offer. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank, which means in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile presence. On the whole, Horizon Bank is a good bank that deserves your consideration at a rating of 4.1 stars out of 5 from the SmartAsset team. 

Horizon Bank provides customers with a full choice of product offerings, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. Horizon Bank has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. The bank's standard checking product features a monthly fee of $5.00, which is not too bad compared to other U.S. banks. Why have checking and savings accounts with the same bank? Convenient transferring between the two accounts means you can still get higher interest rates in your savings account but still spend your funds from your checking.

Service Quality

Horizon Bank is a brick-and-mortar bank, with 69 total bank locations in Indiana and Michigan. With mobile and web apps, Horizon Bank makes mobile banking straightforward, even on the go.  

Horizon Bank's online and mobile banking services get reasonably high ratings from customers: out of 240 customer reviews on Apple and Android platforms, the Horizon Bank mobile app has an overall rating of 3.5 out of 5 (compared to the national average of 3.8). Horizon Bank's mobile app lets you control your finances by looking at monthly statements, sending and receiving funds and accessing customer service. Horizon Bank gets a superb consumer satisfaction rating due to relatively few consumer complaints reported to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB), a government agency that protects consumers in the financial sector.
