Amboy Bank tops the list of best banks in Central New Jersey, according to the Home News Tribune, which ranked the private bank number one for 14 years in a row. The financial institution’s website, amboybank.com outlines the bank’s services to individuals and businesses, including the online banking options for those who like to handle their transactions over the Internet.
Amboy Bank was created in 1888, and the bank has enjoyed a long history of success and growth from their New Jersey headquarters in the Township of Old Bridge. More than 20 other branches handle customer banking needs in cities like Freehold, New Brunswick and Ramtown. The executives and workers at Amboy Bank, according to amboybank.com, pride themselves on their ability to help customers achieve their financial goals by building and nourishing relationships with them, rather than treating them like targets.
Giving back to the community holds importance to Amboy. The institution’s foundation gives out grants and contributions to non-profit organizations, colleges and hospitals to further causes related to community development or social welfare. The grants range from $1,000 to 10,000, amboybank.com says. A news story on the site spotlights how the New Brunswick office gave a donation to help Elijah’s Promise, a group that provides meals for the needy and job training for members of underserved communities wanting to learn the food or hospitality industry. Future plans include keeping the bank independent, well respected in the region, under private ownership and out of the hands and control of megabanks.
