Company Overview

More than half a century ago, we opened our doors at Cathay Bank to serve the growing Chinese American community in Los Angeles. Then, as now, we helped our customers put down new roots with loans to purchase homes. We supported their businesses, which continue to sustain generations. We worked with them to cultivate communities united by a shared drive to create and build lives in Southern California.

Over time, we have expanded along with our customers. Today, we’re a subsidiary of Cathay General Bancorp (Nasdaq: CATY). We have over 60 branches across the United States, a branch in Hong Kong, and three representative offices in Beijing, Shanghai and Taipei.

While the people we serve have evolved and changed, the spirit that makes up our customers remains the same. Every one believes in the power of initiative and perseverance. Each aims to achieve what’s possible. All strive to live their best lives. And we’re happy to work alongside them — providing the tools and services to get them where they want to go.

Our guiding principles

  • Make it personal: We build long-term relationships by genuinely caring about the unique backgrounds, stories and journeys of those we serve — both customers and fellow coworkers.
  • Inspire confidence: We bring honesty, integrity and authenticity to every interaction. We look ahead to future possibilities, focusing on putting people on paths to success.
  • Work together: Our flexible approach allows us to respond quickly to our customers and the rapidly changing marketplace. We embrace diverse thinking and mindsets so we can find the best solutions.
  • Get it done: We’re invested in doing all we can for our customers and for each other. Driven by this passion, we act with courage and resilience to find answers and get things done.
