Our Story

South State Bank has been serving the financial needs of our customers and communities since 1934. By staying true to our values of relationship banking, we’ve become one of the fastest growing regional banks in the South.

While our capabilities continue to evolve, our approach remains the same: taking the time to make things just right so that our communities thrive and our customers realize financial success.

Our Values

Simply put, we value our customers. Everything we do is backed by a philosophy of service and a commitment to supporting the communities we call home. We realize we’re not just managing people’s money — we’re fueling their dreams and guiding their way.


Our principles represent the soul of our company and the people who work here, as well as those who founded this bank. We stay true to those principles.


It's earned on a daily basis. By offering genuine hospitality and expert financial stewardship, we show customers how much we value their business.


What's built over time is shaped by every interaction with our customers. And it always starts with a conversation.


It's not about a customer's background, circumstances or the size of his or her account. We serve people, first and foremost.

From a small rural community bank to a strong regional bank
