Overview

Metro City Bank first started operating in 2006 and has its headquarters in Doraville, Georgia. Metro City Bank manages assets of $1 billion as well as deposits totaling $1 billion, making it a medium-size bank. Metro City 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. At a SmartAsset rating of 3.6 out of 5 stars, Metro City Bank should be near the middle of the pack in your search for a bank. Metro City Bank offers a varied selection of banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and mortgage products. It has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. The bank's standard checking account carries a monthly fee of $7.50, making it a rather pricey bank for checking. Obtaining a checking account with no monthly fee, in addition to a savings account with a high interest rate at the same institution is the best bet for gaining the most income from your deposits alongside easy access to your money.

Metro City 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.
