Overview

Oxford Bank first started operating in 1884 with its headquarters in Oxford, Michigan. Oxford Bank handles $386 million in assets and $349 million in deposits, classifying it as a small bank. Oxford Bank lacks premium access to support representatives, with no options for live chat or all-day service. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile offerings. Coming in at a commendable 4.4 stars out of 5, Oxford Bank is a solid contender in your bank search. Oxford Bank has the complete package of banking products, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, the bank's standard checking account does not have a monthly maintenance charge. Institutions that offer free checking as well as a high interest rate savings account are the best option for accruing the highest income on your deposits while maintaining convenient access to your funds.
