Overview

Started in 1911, Wellesley Bank has assets totaling $803 million and deposits totaling $617 million, which makes the institution a medium-size bank. Wellesley Bank, whose headquarters are in Wellesley, Massachusetts, 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. With a score of 4.1 stars out of 5, Wellesley Bank should be solidly in contention for your choice of bank. Wellesley Bank provides customers with a diverse array of banking products, which include 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 interested in stress-free personal checking, the bank's standard checking account does not carry a monthly charge. Obtaining a checking account with no monthly fee and a savings account with a high interest rate at the same institution is the best bet for returning the most income from your deposits alongside easy access to your money.
