They do a lot of small business financing.

Yeah, but most of the small banks probably didn't have the resources to sponsor something like this, so Citizens ended up doing it.

There are a number of relatively business-friendly small banks in NH, though.  I'd hope that anyone looking to do business banking would do some research before choosing a bank.  But I expect many don't...

Depends upon what you're doing, and where you're located.

For example, if you're near a Centrix Bank branch, and doing business banking, I highly recommend them.  If you have business accounts, they will also let you have personal accounts, but they are a business bank, so if all you want is a personal account, don't waste your time.

A lot of the smaller banks or credit unions have better service than the big banks, but a lot of them are also only in certain areas, so choose a location, then search for what banks/CU's are around that area...

Credit unions are collectivist. I don't like the banks either but I'd much rather deal with one banker then w/ others in the union.

Thx. I was thinking more in terms of mortgages but im just doing some early general researching.

What do ya think of St. Mary's ? I think they're the first CU, established 100 yrs ago. I've seen some good reviews online.

Hahah for the millionth time, not all collectivism is bad...just forced. You really have it out for ANY sort of collective thinking :)

Cooperation isn't the same as collectivism.  All capitalists cooperate at some point.  I have an excess of products, and you have an excess of money, so we cooperate by trading.  Et cetera.

I've no personal experience with them, so I couldn't say much, one way or the other.  Maybe someone else will chime in?

Might want to start a new thread for that, though, and put it in a different section of the forum, to get better traffic.

Hard to say... because NH has Laconia Savings Bank, which is a mutual bank.
