Should I keep accounts at multiple banks?

Rounding it up

  • Keeping accounts at multiple banks has many benefits, but there are some drawbacks to this strategy, too.

  • People who prefer to keep their finances as simple as possible might want to stick with just one bank.

  • If you want to seek out extra banking perks or additional CDIC insurance, having multiple accounts at different institutions can be helpful.

  • Regardless of which strategy you choose, always keep an eye on banking fees to ensure that you keep your costs as low as possible.
