About

A bank on a mission to transform opportunities into wealth

At Optus, our origins date back to 1921 when a group of visionary and courageous African American leaders founded Victory Savings Bank on the principle that all people should have access to the American Dream, not just those born into the “right” circumstances.

We are committed to helping all people build wealth and improve their lives, regardless of their background or situation.

We offer innovative ways to manage, move, save and borrow money for individuals and small businesses with the goal of ensuring that wealth building is not just for the wealthy.

Unlike traditional financial institutions that seek to solely maximize the financial returns for their shareholders, we strive to balance the needs of all stakeholders – our customers, communities, employees and shareholders.

We hope you will join us in our efforts to make capitalism work for all people. Whether you are just getting started on your wealth building journey or you are already on the way, we would like the opportunity to serve you.

Optus is a federally designated Minority Depository Institution and a U.S. Treasury Certified Community Development Financial Institution.
