Why it’s time to break up with your bank

Have you lost that loving feeling with your bank? If it’s gone, gone, gone, it’s time to find a bank that really gets you and won’t take you for granted.

If you’re feeling dissatisfied with your bank, let us be the first to reassure you: It’s not you, it’s them. And if the potential to earn a cash bonus of up to $200* isn’t enough, we’ve put together some reasons we think you should consider making the switch to UBT.

1. They don’t know you.

When you walk into your bank, do your bankers greet you by name? At UBT, it’s part of what we do — we get to know you, your family, and your business. That’s what leads to great service and anticipating your needs.

2. They’re always trying to sell you something.

Would you rather be a customer of a bank with a service-oriented culture or one with a sales culture? Many banks have aggressive monthly sales quotas, resulting in bankers who do what’s best for them — not for you. At UBT, we don’t operate like that. We recommend products and services that are right for you based on your financial needs and situation.

3. They don’t share your values.

If doing business with organizations that are making a positive impact is important to you, ask yourself: What does your bank do to help make the community a better place? Fund programs for children in poverty? Help families in crisis? Support the arts? If helping those who need it most and making the community a more beautiful place are important to you, well, UBT sounds like a perfect match.

4. They just don’t seem happy.

Happier employees provide a superior customer service experience. Does your bank feel like a place where employees are happy to be? Does it feel like a place where you want to be? At Union Bank, we go to great lengths to keep our employees happy, rewarded, challenged, and fulfilled. From insurance and financial benefits to time off for volunteerism and a wellness program, we’re focused on attracting and retaining top talent. Which means you’ll be happier as a customer, too.

Interestingly enough...

Nearly 94% of UBT’s customers stay with us year over year — much higher than the national average. If it’s time for a banking relationship with real people who really care, let’s talk. We can’t wait to serve you.
