     Most people agree on why they need a bank account. But
     when it comes to how they prefer to conduct their banking,
     everyone has a different answer.
     Some people prefer to visit their local branch, others
     prefer the 24-hour convenience and speed of phone or Online
     Banking.
     We believe you should have the freedom to bank the way you
     want.
