Asset 6@2x

We are Open Bank

We are Open Bank, open to be your steward, to serve our clients, our employees, and our communities with faith-based principles... investing in our communities... and celebrating diversity. Our story began on June 10, 2005, as First Standard Bank, a California state- chartered bank headquartered in Los Angeles, California. In October 2010, we changed our name to Open Bank with a new focus and vision on relationship banking.

We have a dynamic management team with experience and proven track records in the communities and unique market areas we serve. The diversity of our experience and management styles helps to make our company strong and creates a good foundation for our continued growth. We recognize and utilize our individual strengths and together we create a synergy that drives our bank.

Our banking philosophy, work ethics, client service focus, and local community involvement are perfectly meshed with the priorities of Open Bank and we will continually strive to improve our products and delivery systems to meet the needs of our communities and business partners.

At Open Bank we pride ourselves on being different!

A Message from Our CEO

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our Open Bank website. These are challenging and exciting times at Open Bank as we continue to be stewards to serve our new and existing clients to grow our relationship together. Since we became Open Bank, we have strived to be different…we are a faith-based organization and have contributed ten percent of our profits to share with non-profit organizations throughout our communities to spread the fruits of our labor. As we continue to grow, our contribution to our communities will grow hand-in-hand. I hope you enjoy our website and have time to visit our office locations to meet with our relationship officers and staff that are there to help you with your financial needs.
