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.
