The Board of Directors and the staff of RiverBank are committed to offering a locally owned and managed financial institution in Randolph and Clay County.  Less than 10 years ago there were 4 locally owned banks in our counties.  Now there is just one, RiverBank.  It is with this commitment to exemplary service to our local community that we have made some significant changes at RiverBank over the past years and we plan to make more.

RiverBank, formerly Corning Savings and Loan, began operations on August 5, 1974 with one location in Corning, Arkansas.  Our Pocahontas branch opened in 2007.  Since then we have seen our size increase 2.5 times while the overall deposit base in Clay and Randolph Counties has decreased 10%.  We have weathered the financial crisis of 2008 and have worked through many of the regulatory changes which resulted from the 2008 financial crisis.  Now RiverBank is among the top performing savings and loans in our peer group thanks to our professional, efficient and hardworking staff.

Last fall management chose to implement a change in several of our core computer functions.  This past summer, we converted all our systems to a single provider operated out of Little Rock, AR.  Our transition had a few bumps, but by all measures it went remarkably well.

The single computer system set the change for our next and biggest improvement.  We began offering INTERNET BANKING on October 1, 2103.  BILL PAY should be available by mid-October, and MOBILE BANKING will be available around year end.  We know we are behind the times on these services, but we had to assure ourselves that we were ready to manage them in a way that made your banking experience more convenient while providing the highest standard for securing your personal and financial information.

Our new name RiverBank became effective October 1, 2013.  We have not outgrown our roots in Corning, AR, but want to have a name which reflects the broader area that we serve.

We have grown, improved, added services, and changed our name; however, our faces are the same and we are still locally owned.  We want to make sure you know that we remain absolutely committed to our core principles: 

  • Friendly and Professional Customer Service
  • Local and Responsive Decision Making
  • Confidentiality and Honesty

Come see us at either of our locations in Corning or Pocahontas and let us help you with all of your financial needs.
