Overview

Started in 1913, Texas Gulf Bank has assets totaling $590 million and $524 million in deposits, which makes it a medium-size bank. Texas Gulf Bank, whose headquarters are in Houston, Texas, lacks premium access to customer service, with no live chat or all-day service options available. 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. SmartAsset has rated Texas Gulf Bank 4.3 stars out of 5, which means it is a solid pick to be your bank. Texas Gulf Bank offers a varied choice of product offerings, 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. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, Texas Gulf Bank's standard checking account does not have a monthly maintenance fee. Locating a checking account with no monthly fee, in addition to a savings account with a high interest rate at the same institution is your best option for returning the most income from your deposits while having easy access to your funds.
