First American International Bank (FAIB) is a great place to bank and an even better place to work. Our mission is to enhance the life of each customer we touch and each FAIB employee who serves New York City’s most vibrant Chinese-American communities.
Founded in 1999, with the dream to bring meaningful financial services to Chinese American immigrant communities; FAIB’s first branch addressed underserviced immigrants in Brooklyn’s Sunset Park neighborhood; today, we’re the largest locally owned Chinese American community bank in New York with multiple branches in Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan. Our success is largely due to a dedicated professional staff who are fluent in Cantonese, Mandarin, and multiple Chinese dialects including Fujianese.
FAIB’s robust residential and commercial lending programs drive home ownership, wealth creation, financial security, and promotes local economies. FAIB has sold and serviced Fannie Mae affordable home mortgages since 2003; financing over $1.5BN in loans, we’ve helped more than 4,600 families buy a home, pay for college, or fulfill a personal dream. FAIB’s commercial loans facilitate the purchase or refinance of mixed-use, multi-family, office, retail, and industrial properties. FAIB’s lending relationships built on mutual trust and understanding, empower our customers to make their dreams a reality.
FAIB community development efforts—providing services to those without access to financing—have not gone unnoticed; since 2001, the U.S Department of the Treasury has recognized FAIB as a Community Development Financial Institution—honorific status held by less than 2% of US banks. The Treasury Department recognizes FAIB as a Minority Bank; FAIB also supports local charities, nonprofits, and events that uplift our communities.
FAIB 7-day branch services include a full array of consumer and business banking products; catering to the Chinese American community we serve in English and Chinese.
Let FAIB help you realize your everyday dreams.
