5 Benefits of Relationship Banking

A pair of hands shaking each other

Relationship banking goes above and beyond transactional banking. Relationship banking focuses on creating connections and developing a deep understanding of your unique banking needs so you can meet your short- and long-term financial goals. With relationship banking, your banker is committed to understanding your unique challenges, needs, and concerns. Whether you’re an individual, family, or a business, your banker can make personalized recommendations that support you in the best way possible.

Why Does Relationship Banking Matter?

When it comes to your money, it’s important to have a bank you trust and people you can depend on. The more you share with your banker, the better they can help you succeed. For example, your banker can answer specific questions about potential banking solutions and services, help you navigate complex financial situations, and fast-track processes.

Five Benefits of Relationship-Focused Banking

1. Personalized customer service

Every time you talk, ask a question, or review your financial information, your banker becomes more familiar with you and your needs. Instead of taking a siloed, one-size-fits-all approach, your bankers engage with you and use the information you’ve shared to help you take a strategic, integrated approach to your finances.

2. Reliability

Relationship banking provides end-to-end support throughout each and every process. Whether you need to open a personal checking account, apply for a business loan, process your payroll on time, or protect your accounts from fraud, your bankers are always there to help you and guide you every step of the way.

3. Agility

Relationship banking prioritizes personal service, attention to detail, and prompt action for customers. When you need something done quickly, a relationship banker can jump through hoops to meet your deadline or address your problem. A close relationship with customers makes it possible to respond to any issues quickly and easily.

“A few weeks ago, I messed up and scheduled an ACH by mistake,” said a Stellar Bank customer. “I called [my banker] and he removed it before it went. No matter what my needs are, it gets taken care of right away.”

4. Convenient Access

Imagine the ease of picking up your phone and calling an expert directly for help instead of going through an automated phone system—that’s one of the key benefits of relationship banking. Relationship bankers work closely with you to support you and simplify your banking experience. When you need something, your trusted banker is just a phone call, text, or quick email away.

5. Trust

Over time, your team of expert bankers can become trusted advisors who work hard to give you straight answers and the best banking experience possible. They also have a great network of resources to help in other areas.

“After you are in business for many years, you experience highs and lows,” said a Stellar Bank customer. “In down times, it’s important to have relationships and rapport and know that if [your banker] can do something to help, they would in a heartbeat. It feels like a partnership along with your business. They’re not just there to collect fees.”
