We all live in a world that is better connected than ever before. Through the internet and social media, millions of people can now access information and virtual relationships from all over the globe. Geographic boundaries can be overcome like never before.
Through new technologies such as Apple and Samsung Pay, Queensborough customers are able to make debit card payments conveniently using their phone. Meanwhile, we continue to invest in state-of-the-art solutions such as ClickSWITCH™ and SecurLOCK Equip to keep you safe against cybercrime, malware and other modern inconveniences. We believe that we can serve you better by being a nimble, technologically-aware bank.
Yet, none of this can replace the basic desire of human beings to have community. Studies show that loneliness and social isolation are rife in modern American society, as people feel they are no longer connected to those immediately around them. Two in five Americans report that they sometimes or always feel their social relationships are not meaningful, and one in five say they feel lonely or socially isolated .
While we can’t fix the world in a day, at Queensborough we believe in the importance of building community through a local presence and real in-person interactions between our bankers and our staff. As other local banks have been swallowed up by bigger, out-of-town banks, we’ve remained as a truly local bank that is committed to providing professional expertise and personal relationships from Augusta to Savannah and everywhere in between.
A local, community presence does not have to come at the expense of innovation and reliability. As a Queensborough customer, you can count on us to deliver you the best of both worlds.
