Overview

Established in 2002, SouthEast Bank has assets totaling $1 billion as well as $1 billion in deposits, ranking the institution as a large bank. SouthEast Bank, whose headquarters are in Farragut, Tennessee, 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 out of 5 stars, indicating that SouthEast Bank is a solid pick to be your bank. SouthEast Bank offers a complete array of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. SouthEast Bank has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, SouthEast Bank offers an option without a maintenance or monthly fee. Locating an institution with no-fee checking and a high savings APY is your best bet for getting the highest income on your deposits while maintaining easy access to your funds.
