Our experience with Fidelity Bank has been outstanding. When the PPP offering came about, it was chaos. Fidelity Bank’s ability to immediately provide a portal that gave us quick access to funding was amazing. When it comes to digital technology and client responsiveness, Fidelity Bank is worlds ahead of other banks. They are nimble, responsive, they value our business, and they were there when we needed them.
