Cannabis Banking

We are ready to help your business grow. As the #1 bank in Massachusetts for marijuana banking, we will serve your cannabis business’ needs in a safe, secure and compliant way. Our cannabis banking team, led by industry pioneer Paul Evangelista, was the first to bank cannabis-related business in Massachusetts, so you won’t find a more experienced cannabis banking team. Our experts have shaped the cannabis banking industry and look forward to assisting you with your banking needs.

Needham Bank offers full-service banking for marijuana-related businesses including loans, deposit accounts and cash management services. We also are eager to serve the needs of your employees- whether it’s personal checking accounts, mortgage loans or other deposit or loan products. Not to mention, most of our products can be opened and serviced online, although a friendly Needham Banker is always available by phone at our Customer Care Center.
