A New Name – Foundation One Bank

Frequently Asked Questions

1. Why is the bank changing its name?

We believe that responsible banking practices are the foundation for a healthy institution. When we were made aware of another bank with a similar name to ours, we referred to a characteristic defined within our BRAND PERSONALITY ATTRIBUTES; “Unique”. The name Foundation One Bank was chosen not only for this characteristic but we wanted to remain consistent with our customer approach strategy. We want to be your number one bank.
