In October of 2006, Seaside Bank and Trust opened its doors for business. In doing so, we made history. Seaside is the largest de novo, federally-chartered bank in the United States in terms of initial capitalization. With this financial strength, we are able to provide our clients with a customized set of private banking and commercial products and services as well as wealth management and insurance solutions. Our sophisticated product suite rivals that of large, regional banks. However, Seaside is fundamentally different from most banks. Seaside’s core business strategy is not product-specific, promotion of growth for growth’s sake. Every Client Advisor at Seaside approaches each new piece of business not just as a transaction, but as part of an ongoing relationship, beneficial to our clients and to Seaside.
