City National Bank is a mid-sized, publicly traded bank (NYSE: CYN) that provides individual and business customers with banking, lending, and wealth management products and services. The bank emphasizes that it is not a Wall Street bank, but rather a California-based institution focused on its community.

On its individual banking side, City National Bank offers a range of depository products and loans to meet its customers’ needs. Several checking account options offer a variety of features, requirements, and interest incentives. City National Bank’s savings accounts allow customers to choose either a basic savings account or one that functions electronically, without paper statements. Money market accounts give customers the opportunity to earn higher rates of interest by maintaining larger minimum balances. Certificates of deposit have minimum initial deposit requirements and range in term lengths. City National Bank provides international banking services as well, which could be useful to U.S. citizens living abroad or who travel frequently. Those international services include wire transfers, currency management, foreign currency exchange, and foreign currency deposit accounts.

City National Bank online banking provides an easy way for customers to perform tasks like account management, Bill Pay, check image viewing, stop payment orders, and mobile banking. The bank has released a mobile smartphone app to make it simple for customers to perform those account related tasks while on the go. Customers of the bank can also pay for Quicken services to be linked with their deposit accounts for personal financial management.

City National Bank was established in 1954 in order to serve entrepreneurs and professionals in the entertainment and real estate industries in Beverly Hills, California. Since then, the bank has moved its headquarters to Los Angeles, California, and has expanded its customer base across the United States, serving them through numerous branches.

Great Bank With Good Customer Service

I worked here and personally banked at their San Francisco location for over 15 years. I have nothing but great things to say about the bank, the top notch customer service they provide, and how they run the organization. Great products, knowledgeable bankers and stick to traditional banking for growth (no risky business). A cool note, they bank nearly half of Hollywood, so you may see a famous person while visiting a branch.
