Our Story

MorrisonsIt’s a true story. We started Optima Bank & Trust as a conversation around our dining room table. After more than two decades working in the banking industry we saw most of the local banks being consolidated. As the community banks disappeared so did the level of customer service. We recognized a need for a new local bank that had a commitment to the highest level of service, a full range of products as well as the latest in technology. In 2008 we opened our first branch in Portsmouth and we haven’t looked back.

Today we have multiple locations in a number of communities and we employ people who we consider to be the best bankers in the business. We are responsive and sophisticated enough to serve the needs of the business owners, entrepreneurs, professionals and people just like you who keep the region on the move. Our goal is to change the way you think about banking.

So whether you are looking to open a checking account for yourself, to secure a loan for your business or considering purchasing or refinancing a home – one of our experienced bankers can help.

If you haven’t already done so, we invite you to call or visit a local branch today and learn more about why we believe Everything is possible.™ We look forward to getting to know you.

Warm regards,
