Our Culture

Opening doors to opportunity

When Cathay Bank was founded in 1962, we stood out as one of the only banks that would support the underserved immigrant community. Today, we have built loyalty among our customer base and stand out for being a bank that provides opportunities to our customers, employees and communities.


Our story

At Cathay Bank, we’re inspired by the initiative, goals, and dreams of our customers. We’re energized by their drive to embark on new journeys, and it’s why everything we do starts with understanding where our customers want to go — and getting them there.

Along with our extensive experience and innovative thinking, we bring an open mind to every interaction and a willingness to work with customers in ways that best suit their needs.

We’re there for every aspiration and ambition — determined to do all we can to help customers get where they want to go.
