Overview

Started in 1994, Wintrust Bank has assets totaling $5 billion as well as $4 billion in deposits, ranking it as a large bank. Wintrust Bank, whose headquarters are in Chicago, Illinois, 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. With a score of 4.1 out of 5 stars, Wintrust Bank should be solidly in contention for your choice of bank. Wintrust Bank offers a variety of banking products, which include savings accounts, checking accounts, money market accounts, mortgage products and credit cards. It has a fair savings rate; other popular banks have higher rates. If you're interested in stress-free personal checking, Wintrust Bank's most basic checking account does not carry a monthly maintenance fee. Locating a checking account with no monthly fee and a savings account with a high APY at the same institution is your best bet for getting the most income from your deposits while maintaining easy access to your money.
