First Citizens

Who we are and what we believe

First Citizens has a long and proud history in South Carolina, with roots dating to 1913.

First Citizens has grown to become the second largest bank based in the state. Through acquisitions and strategic development, First Citizens now not only reaches into every comer of South Carolina – serving more communities than any other bank – but also has established a growing presence in eastern Georgia.

Throughout our history, we have remained committed to our customers and to the South Carolina and Georgia communities we serve. Our mission statement embodies the community-bank philosophy that has been the foundation of First Citizens' growth and development.
