Southwest Bank first started operating in 1947 and has its headquarters in Odessa, Texas. Southwest Bank has assets of $375 million as well as $337 million in deposits, which makes it a small bank. Southwest Bank 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 access to service representatives at a physical location, in addition to its online and mobile apps. With a commendable 4.1 out of 5 stars, Southwest Bank is a good bank that should be given a look. Southwest Bank has a complete array of banking products, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. Southwest Bank has a fair savings rate compared to the average savings account. Finding an institution with no-fee checking and a high interest rate savings account is the best bet for accruing the most income from your deposits while having convenient access to your money.

Southwest Bank has several deposit products including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts and CDs that provide you with many options to manage your money. Southwest 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. Southwest Bank's CD rates are fair compared to the average U.S. bank.
