Overview

Metropolitan Commercial Bank first started operating in 1999 and is headquartered in New York, New York. It owns assets of $2 billion along with $1 billion in deposits, which makes it a large bank. Metropolitan Commercial Bank lacks premium access to customer service, with no live chat or all-day service options available. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile offerings. On the whole, Metropolitan Commercial Bank is a respectable bank that deserves your consideration, with a rating of 4.1 stars out of 5 from the SmartAsset team. Metropolitan Commercial Bank has a varied choice of product offerings, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs. Metropolitan Commercial Bank has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. The bank's standard checking product carries a monthly fee of $3.00, which is acceptable in comparison to the national average. Locating an institution with no-fee checking as well as a high interest rate savings account is your best option for getting the most income on your deposits alongside convenient access to your funds.
