Focusing on strengthening the places we’re proud to serve
NOT JUST IN THE COMMUNITY - WE ARE INVESTED
Citizens Trust Bank is extremely committed and continues to promote community economic growth and stability. We believe that taking care of our customers and the community through personalized engagement: we create a win for everyone. Our conscious contributions will continue to enhance our performance and enable our ability to remain a valued partner.
FINANCIAL INDEPENDENCE TRAINING
Financial Independence Training [FIT] represents CTB’s commitment to educate, motivate and inspire young people to obtain a future of healthy financial well-being. The FIT resources have been provided to over 14,000 middle and high school students.
Lead by our founding principles, our goal is to elevate our customers in the Wealth-Builder category to grow stronger financially. Whether that is providing the resources to help them to become homeowners or helping them grow their small businesses, we continue to evolve banking solutions to meet their growing banking needs.
Homeownership has been identified as a key factor to address the inequality in the wealth gap for Black Americans. CTB has hosted a series of educational workshops and other events that touched over 4,000 people.
17% YOY Growth
in asset size
w/ residential mortgage representation as of 2021
The incredible growth of our valued clients has helped pave our way forward to opportunities to expand our presence and relationships in other markets. We hope to be a $1B bank by 2024.
Despite these growth trends, we know the unchangeable fact that: sustainable communities cannot thrive without resilience and consensus on the shared value of the community ecosystems. Partnerships with and investments from larger mainstream institutions like JP Morgan Chase, Citi, Wells Fargo, the Black Banks Foundation and MLS start a new paradigm.
The importance of inclusion and being a champion for the need for economic equality continues to resonate and deliver Citizens Trust Bank a larger platform to improve our communities’ ecosystems.

The importance of inclusion and being a champion for the need for economic equality continues to resonate and deliver Citizens Trust Bank a larger platform to improve our communities’ ecosystems. Our partnerships provide us scalable opportunities to leverage the technology, resources, and expertise needed to deepen relationships with a broader number of consumers and businesses to help dispel the disparaging wealth gap in Black and Brown communities.
