Integrated Financial Solutions for High Net Worth Clients
At Arvest Bank, private banking clients enjoy professional expertise coupled with an authentic individual focus.
“Good banking is produced not by good laws, but by good bankers.” – Hartley Withers, prominent British financial journalist around the turn of the 19th century.
What is banking? Simply speaking, it is an industry that handles cash, credit and other financial transactions. Banks provide its clients with a place to store extra cash and credit. Banks typically offer a menu of products and services, including savings accounts, certificate of deposit, and checking accounts. In turn, banks rely on deposits to these accounts to make loans. Banking helps drive the economy of the United States.
But what is Private Banking? Well, imagine having the exclusive opportunity to establish a trusted and personal relationship with your own Private Banker who works with a team of experienced professionals in the management of all facets of your financial profile.
