Quontic Bank is a young bank, with its tenth anniversary only a week away. In late 2009, Steven Schnall, a New York real estate developer, bought the Long Island-based Golden First Bank, which was in financial trouble after only four years of being established. Schnall recapitalized the bank, brought in a new management team, and rebranded the institution as Quontic Bank.

At Quontic’s root is “ontic,” meaning real or factual existence. The truth is that there is an extraordinary diversity of circumstances in the real and factual existence of our customers’ lives. We believe banking needs to be adaptive to those circumstances, so we ask the Qualitative and Quantitative questions that enable us to do so. Hence Quontic – an adaptive form of “ontic.” We like how it sounds and what it stands for.

Quontic bank is not accepting online applications for days now. Perhaps they've stopped all new applications? Their website says "due to system upgrades" but that has been the comment for a while now.
