Overview

Established in 2007, Pacific Enterprise Bank has $507 million in assets along with deposits totaling $450 million, which makes it a medium-size bank. Pacific Enterprise Bank, whose headquarters are in Irvine, California, 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 apps. Coming in at a poor 3.1 stars out of 5, Pacific Enterprise Bank is a fair bank that does not compare with some of the other banks. Pacific Enterprise Bank has a full suite of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs and IRAs. Pacific Enterprise Bank has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. The bank's standard checking product carries a monthly fee of $15.00, which places it at the higher end of monthly fees. Obtaining a checking account with no monthly fee, in addition to a savings account with a high interest rate at the same institution is your best option for gaining the most income on your deposits while maintaining convenient access to your funds.

Pacific Enterprise Bank does not have the best savings rate, which means you should think about taking a look elsewhere for banks that deliver more return for your money.
