It offers personal and business banking products and loans mainly through its physical branches, but also offers CDs through its online bank, Doral Direct. Its parent company, Doral Financial Corporation, is publicly traded on the New York Stock Exchange (Symbol: DRL).

On its personal banking side, Doral Bank offers checking, savings, and Money Market accounts, as well as Certificates of Deposit (CDs). A free checking and an interest checking account are offered and differ feature-wise only in that the interest checking account comes with a very competitive interest rate and a monthly service fee. Both checking accounts feature free check imaging, unlimited Doral Bank ATM transactions, and a debit card. The savings account also offers a very competitive interest rate and requires a monthly balance to be maintained in order to avoid a service charge.

Doral Bank’s CDs are available in term lengths from 6 to 60 months, and interest rates differ slightly depending on where you look. The bank’s New York market offers slightly higher rates than the offerings found on Doral Direct. The bank’s business deposit accounts are similar to the personal accounts, but generally have higher minimum balance requirements.
