Key Factors Leading Us to Rank This Firm as One of This Year’s Top Banking Firms

Upon completing our Signature Bank reviews, Signature Bank was included in AdvisoryHQ’s ranking of this year’s best banking firms based on the following factors. 

Signature Bank Review: Organizational Structure

One of the most compelling things that’s noteworthy when reviewing Signature Bank is its organization structure, which offers clients a single point of contact for all of their banking needs. This is offered through a Private Client Group.

Members of Signature Private Client Groups are found at major banks and brokerages and then trained and developed to provide the highest level of service to Signature clients.

The result of this structure is the ability to build small business service and relationships without the sacrifice of a big bank experience and expertise.

Signature Bank Review: Personal Checking Accounts

Even though Signature Bank works primarily with privately-owned businesses, it also has a full-service selection of personal products and offerings, including personal checking accounts.

Many of these accounts include no monthly fees as long as the account balance is kept above a certain limit. Accounts like the Signature Personal Checking and Monogram Personal Checking accounts carry no activity or signature fees for using another bank’s ATM.

The Signature Basic Checking Account has a flat-rate fee of $3.

Signature Bank Review: Signature Securities

Signature Securities Group Corporation is a wholly-owned, non-bank subsidiary that provides a broad range of investment products and services to go along with what’s offered under the umbrella of private client banking.
