5 Reasons Why Small Businesses Trust Community Banks in Connecticut

Trust matters in life – and in business. It certainly matters to small business owners when it comes to choosing their financial institutions. It’s why so many small businesses have awarded their business and their loyalty to local community banks.

Community banks like First County Bank offer unique advantages to business owners, including:

Local knowledge

It’s nice to know that your financial institution understands your marketplace, and that the people who work there actually know you and your community. That means they’re able to deliver a higher level of personal service and connect you to other business owners and advisors who can help you.

“Big Bank” business accounts & services

You don’t have to go to a big bank to get the services you need to manage your cash flow and grow your business. Community banks like First County Bank often offer a full range of deposit, lending, investing, and other services – right here in your backyard.

Local decision-making

If you need a loan for your business, community banks offer a very important advantage: access to local decision-makers who will take the time to get to know you and your business. That means you won’t have to go through layers and layers of approval and will get a fast decision – and access to the money you need.

Community support

Community banks were chartered to support local people and the communities where they live and work. That’s why they’re deeply invested in helping support events, causes, non-profits, and businesses that make life better for others. Plus, they understand just how important your business is in helping build jobs and stabilizing the local economy.

Personal service

We all know how convenient banking electronically can be. But what if you need assistance with your accounts or managing a business challenge? With a community bank, you can come right inside and talk to us in person.
