Banking in the El Paso Area

With its culturally diverse population and rich history, El Paso's large metropolitan area is self-sufficient with a modern touch. Amongst the tall buildings, housing business offices and places of commerce, residents can find what they need to function day-to-day, providing the amenities that a big city has to offer without the hassle of a big city. Whether it is for shopping, working or running a business, numerous banking opportunities can be found throughout the area to safely secure and provide access to funds needed.

The oldest active bank in El Paso is the First National Bank which was established in 1920, setting the standard for the banking in the area. Other notable financial institutions in the El Paso area include Bank of America, Bank of the West, GECU, and FirstLight Federal Credit Union. Today, there are approximately seven banks with 31 branches and nine credit unions with 12 branches throughout the city. These El Paso financial institutions are available to help citizens reach homeowner, educational, recreational and other life goals.

Choosing the right financial institution can, in many cases, be difficult. However, El Paso banking is as diverse and rich as the population itself. Banking options, including credit unions and savings and loans, with multiple branches placed conveniently throughout the city, makes choosing the right financial institution an easier decision.
