Overview

Founded in 1934, SouthTrust Bank has $378 million in assets as well as deposits totaling $336 million, which makes it a small bank. SouthTrust Bank, whose headquarters are in George West, Texas, lacks premium access to customer service, with no options for live chat or all-day service. It is a traditional brick-and-mortar bank with access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile offerings. Coming in at a commendable 4.3 stars out of 5, SouthTrust Bank is a solid contender in your bank search. SouthTrust Bank has a varied choice of banking products, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and mortgage products. It has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, SouthTrust Bank's standard checking account does not have a monthly fee. Institutions that offer no-fee checking as well as a high interest rate savings account are the best option for gaining the highest income on your deposits alongside convenient access to your money.
