BNB is a community bank based on Long Island. What is a community bank?
A community bank is local. That means it is committed to supporting and giving back to the communities it serves. The staff of the branches is local, the decision-making is local – which means that you are not just a number; you are a customer with a face and a name.
How is BNB different?
For more than 100 years, BNB has had the same mission: to support local businesses and individuals and help them grow and thrive in the neighborhoods where they live and work. That partnership makes for a strong community. We pride ourselves on our long-term relationships. In fact, many generations of the same family or business have been customers of the bank. Another important fact is that loan and account decisions are made right here on Long Island, unlike many large institutions. So, as a customer you can be assured that someone knows who you are and what your financial needs are.
Many banks have had financial problems. How strong is BNB?
This institution is very strong. In fact, we were named one of the top 200 community banks in the country by American Banker. We are one of the few banks that is actually growing. Click here for more specific financial data.
Does BNB have all the "bells and whistles" of larger banks like online banking and bill pay?
Absolutely. We may have been around for more than 100 years, but we have not been standing still. We make it a point to keep up with our customers' needs and with technology, and we are constantly reinvesting and improving. From remote deposit capture to online banking and bill pay and state-of-the art security protection, BNB has everything a banking customer needs.
