Local. is more than geography. Local. is community.
Local. is relationships.

In 2004, Coastal States Bank opened its doors in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina, as southern Beaufort County’s only locally-owned bank. Our founders saw an opportunity to serve the community through a relationship-based bank where friends and neighbors could serve each other.

Symphony

No matter where you are.

The strengths of our relationships and our unwavering commitment allowed us to thrive and earn the trust of our partners. Weathering the storm of the Great Recession, we proudly maintain long-standing connections while expanding our reach to communities far and wide. From South Carolina to Georgia and coastal states and beyond, we bring our Local. touch to enrich the lives and communities we serve –from our physical branches and neighborhoods to communities nationwide.
