Personalized Service, Exceptional Benefits.

Personalized service drives Amerant Preferred Banking. The relationships Amerant Preferred customers enjoy with our relationship managers go beyond being merely personal — they rise to the level of collaborative partnerships.

Our Relationship Managers create financial strategies based on each client’s goals - and devise a plan of action based on joint discussion and mutual decision-making. They bring the same level of sensitivity and consideration to each customer’s money matters as they do to their own.

The Preferred Way.

Everyone’s needs and goals are different. Preferred relationship managers get to know their clients.

It’s a process that starts with learning about each individual and family: career trajectories, investment philosophies, educational goals for children, and upcoming or ongoing eldercare among many other variables. After all, personal banking without deep understanding is a hollow promise.
