About Bank of the Orient

In 1971, Bank of the Orient opened its headquarters in the heart of San Francisco’s Financial District to serve the banking needs of the Asian-American community. During the past five decades, we have continued to provide financial support and assistance to help local communities grow and prosper. Since the beginning of our establishment, Bank of the Orient’s tradition has been to provide highly personalized service and demonstrate commitment to our customers.

With current assets totaling over $860 million and local branches in the Bay Area covering San Francisco, Oakland, Millbrae. Furthermore, Bank of the Orient has extended its services to places as far as Xiamen, China. Nevertheless, Bank of the Orient continues to carry out the commitment to meet the needs of all our customers. While looking forward to expand its footprint, the Bank remains deeply rooted in the Bay Area to continue serving its local community.

“Your success is our success”

What sets Bank of the Orient apart from its competitors? The time our staff spends with customers to provide product and service information, as well as business and personal financial advice. For over five decades, our priority has been to meet our customers’ individual needs, rather than providing the “off-the-shelf” service found in other banks. Our attitude is “Your success is our success”.
