Everyday banking accounts - they're simple enough, aren't they? Sure, but they're not all the same. At Alterna our fees are lower than most major financial institutions, and since Alterna is member-owned, our profits go right back to our members into what we can offer you in reduced rates and better services as well as back into the communities we serve. That’s the kind of simple banking we believe in!
