Banking in the Columbus Area

As a diverse and growing city, Columbus, Georgia, has an interesting and colorful history. Since its establishment in the 1800s, Columbus has long been a desirable area due to its central proximity to the Chattahoochee River. The City played a prominent role in many portions of the Civil War and its following Reconstruction, making it a fine destination for history buffs, as well as locals passionate about their heritage.

When it comes to banking options, there are several dynamic and robust banks and branches within the city proper and its nearby outlying regions. With a system of twelve banks headquartered in the immediate vicinity, Columbus is the main hub for several notable institutions such as Synovus Bank and Kinetic Federal Credit Union. Synovus Bank is the longest running bank in this area and has operated for over a century. Additionally, Columbus hosts twelve credit unions and features about 200 branches from more than 40 banks and 20 credit unions. These locations allow for convenience and ease of banking, along with safety and security for customers' funds.

Synovus Bank is also a highly influential player in the economic persona of this city, as it is one of the largest local businesses and one of the top ten employers as well. The ease of transit within the city and the multiple available bank branches make it a breeze for families to stop and shop as they go about their day. Knowledgeable and friendly staff make bank visits pleasant and efficient within this fine historic metropolis!
