Regions Bank was the first multi-bank holding company in Alabama. It is an award-winning bank providing a complete suite of products and services for businesses and individuals alike.
Regions Financial Corporation was formed in 1971. It opened with three affiliate banks including Regions Bank which was founded in 1928. The holding company began acquiring out-of-state banks in 1986. The following year it became the first Alabama bank to offer telephone banking.

Other savings account options include a regular savings account, savings for minors, CD accounts with terms starting at 90 days, and a regular money market account. Other personal banking services include loans, Visa gift cards, tax payment services, credit cards, insurance, brokerage services, trust and asset management services, mutual funds, annuities and retirement planning services.
Regions Bank provides a full suite of products and services for small businesses. This suite includes three checking account types, three small business savings accounts, business CDs, SBA loans (and other loans and business lines of credit), business insurance and employee retirement planning.
An additional suite of commercial banking services supplements the small business product suite. This suite includes deposit services, merchant services, treasury management services, audit confirmations, payroll services and global trade finance services.
