Overview

Started in 1997, Union Bank & Trust has assets totaling $9 billion as well as $7 billion in deposits, ranking the institution as a large bank. Union Bank & Trust, whose headquarters are in Richmond, Virginia, 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 offerings. At a SmartAsset rating of 4.3 out of 5 stars, Union Bank & Trust should be solidly in contention for your choice of bank. Union Bank & Trust offers a complete array of product offerings, including savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, CDs, IRAs, mortgage products and credit cards. Union Bank & Trust has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. If you're looking for a checking account for everyday use, Union Bank & Trust's most basic checking does not have a monthly fee. Institutions that offer no-fee checking as well as a high interest rate savings account are the best bet for gaining the highest income on your deposits while maintaining easy access to your money.
