About Us

First Citizens Bank

First Citizens Bank is one of the largest family controlled banks in the United States. We've been led for three generations by the family of our Chairman and CEO Frank B. Holding Jr. and Vice Chairman Hope Holding Bryant. As such, we have a special understanding of the challenges and opportunities faced by families, privately-owned companies and practices and other organizations working to build value for the future. Our combination of deep resources and personalized service has been a fundamental part of the way we do business for generations: building relationships that last, understanding what makes each client special, helping them create one-of-a-kind financial strategies to fit their unique needs and always keeping an eye on the long-term. Founded in 1898, First Citizens Bank has regional offices in Charleston, S.C., and is headquartered in Raleigh, N.C. The bank is a wholly owned subsidiary of First Citizens BancShares, which has total assets of more than $37 billion. We have more than 7,000 associates and operate over 550 branches in 19 states, including 140 locations across South Carolina.
