Overview

Founded in 2006, River Bank & Trust has $823 million in assets and $701 million in deposits, making the institution a medium-size bank. River Bank & Trust, whose headquarters are in Prattville, Alabama, lacks premium access to customer service, with no live chat or all-day service options available. 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. We gave River Bank & Trust a 3.5 stars out of 5, indicating that it is an acceptable bank choice, but may leave you wanting more. River Bank & Trust provides customers with the complete slate of product offerings, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. River Bank & Trust has a fair savings rate; you can find higher rates with other banks. The bank's standard checking product carries a $8.00 monthly fee, making it a rather pricey bank for checking. Finding a checking account with no monthly fee and a savings account with a high interest rate at the same bank is your best bet for gaining the most income from your deposits while having easy access to your money.

River Bank & Trust offers several deposit products like savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs to give you many options to manage your money. River Bank & Trust does not have the best savings rate, which means you should think about looking elsewhere for banks that deliver more return for your money. CDs can be a terrific option to achieve higher returns, but there are limitations to accessing your money. River Bank & Trust's CD rates are fair compared to the national average.
