Our mission and values guide every action we take.
We are proud of our role as a trusted community bank in Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Each time we serve you, we're reminded of our mission's importance, and we approach each day with renewed dedication.
We use experience, innovation and collaboration in service to our customers, employees, and community.
Our Core Values
BankFive was founded by a group of business leaders who recognized a need in the community and acted upon it by bringing fair and equitable savings solutions to those working and residing in Fall River, MA. As entrepreneurs themselves, they found an innovative solution to the banking challenges of the day - a mutual savings bank without shareholders. More than 168 years later, we proudly serve our SouthCoast Massachusetts and Rhode Island communities with the same passion as our founders. Their spirit is reflected in our core values:
People are at the heart of everything we do. We believe that our collective spirit can improve the lives of those around us. For our employees, we offer the opportunity to grow and build a career in an environment dedicated to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Many of our employees spend their entire career with us, starting as a teller and working into senior positions. We offer customers sound, honest, and reliable financial advice for themselves and their families so they can build savings for generations to come. Many customers tell us that they opened their first savings account with us and are still customers decades later. Our dedication to service and economic development makes a lasting impact on our neighbors and communities. We understand that when our employees, customers, and communities thrive, our bank does too. We're proud to be a trusted partner to those who put their faith in us and are always looking for ways to give back and make a difference. Like we say, we truly are "better, together."
With over 168 years of service to our communities, BankFive has built a legacy of trust and integrity. We are woven into the fabric of our communities, supporting hundreds of local organizations with donations, sponsorships, and volunteers. We understand that trust is earned through consistent, dependable performance, and that's exactly what we strive to deliver each day. Our steadfast commitment to our customers, employees, and communities, means that you can count on us to be there for you, now and always, with unmatched reliability and unwavering support.
We believe in being dynamic, innovative, and agile in our approach, offering creative solutions and utilizing current technology to provide the best customer experience. Despite a 168 year history, we constantly evolve to keep pace with technological advances and customer expectations. By adopting the latest advancements in the industry, our focus on technology enables us to offer seamless, convenient, and secure banking solutions, providing our personal and business customers with the solutions, services, and speed they need for their fast-paced lives.
Our Values Create Real Value
We share more than a backyard with our customers. We share a vision of collaboration, service and integrity that can only be achieved when we approach all with compassion and empathy. This makes us more than a bank, this makes us mutual.
