Our Story

Regents Bank was founded in 2001 by local banking professionals, each with more than 20 years of banking experience. They came together with local community leaders to create a business bank that is devoted to helping our clients thrive by offering sage advice, guidance, credit, and solutions.

We’ve grown Regents Bank in the same challenging environment our clients face each day. We know what it takes to launch and run a business because we’ve done it ourselves. That's why we go above and beyond to make things work for our clients. We bring good business sense and a collaborative attitude to every relationship.

We support our clients with a comprehensive platform of financial products and services that addresses their needs today, and adapts with them as they grow. Our clients come to us with complex issues – because we have a proven track record of solving them. We may look like a typical bank, but we always strive to provide value beyond banking - to help our clients build better businesses.

Regents Bank joined the Grandpoint Capital family of banks in February of 2012, and became a part of Grandpoint Bank in September 2013. This partnership has provided a broader range of services and enhancements to our clients including a larger lending capacity and a wider network of banking offices. In addition to the five Regents Bank offices in San Diego and Vancouver, WA, our clients have access to Grandpoint Bank offices in Los Angeles and Orange County, Bank of Tucson offices, and The Biltmore Bank of Arizona office in Phoenix.
