Overview

Signature Bank was founded in 2001 and its headquarters are located in New York, New York. Signature Bank manages $43 billion in assets as well as deposits totaling $33 billion, classifying it as a very large bank. Signature Bank lacks premium access to customer service, with no options for live chat or all-day service. It is a conventional brick-and-mortar bank with access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile apps. We gave the bank a 4.2 stars out of 5, which means Signature Bank is a solid contender in your bank search. Signature Bank provides customers with a full selection of banking products, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, brokerage accounts, mortgage products and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. The bank's standard checking account features a $3.00 monthly fee, which is not too high compared to the average U.S. bank. Locating a checking account with no monthly fee as well as a savings account with a high APY at the same institution is the best bet for getting the most income from your deposits alongside convenient access to your funds.

SmartAsset Average: 4.4

On average, Signature Bank charges customers above-average fees in comparison to the national average. At $3.00/month, Signature Bank's checking account is not the best product for those who want an easy banking experience. Signature Bank unfortunately doesn't reimburse out-of-network ATM charges, meaning you'll have to search for a Signature Bank ATM or eat the ATM charge.

Monthly Fee $3.00 National Average: $3.21
Non-network ATM Fee N/A National Average: $1.20
Overdraft Fee N/A National Average: $35.00

Signature Bank has several deposit products including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs to give you many options to manage your money. Signature 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. CDs can be a terrific option to achieve higher returns, but there are limitations to accessing your money. Signature Bank's CD rates are fair compared to the average U.S. bank.
