Overview

Started in 1913, Texas Gulf Bank has $590 million in assets along with deposits totaling $524 million, which makes the institution a medium-size bank. Texas Gulf Bank, whose headquarters are in Houston, Texas, lacks premium access to support representatives, with no options for live chat or all-day service. It is a traditional brick-and-mortar bank with in-person service, in addition to its online and mobile apps. On the whole, Texas Gulf Bank is a great choice and should warrant serious consideration, with a score of 4.3 out of 5 stars from our team. Texas Gulf Bank offers a mixture of banking products, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs and mortgage products. It has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates.

Banks that offer no-fee checking and a high savings APY are your best bet for returning the highest income from your deposits while maintaining convenient access to your money.
