Welcome Watch Hill Bank Customers

On behalf of everyone at Forcht Bank we would like to officially welcome you! Following the purchase of Watch Hill Bank on November 1, 2018, we have been working together to familiarize ourselves with you, the community and the amazing staff in Cincinnati.  And we're excited to take the next step allowing you access to our full line of banking products.  

On February 8, 2019 we mailed you information about about Forcht Bank, our products, and details about your new Forcht Bank Account.  The Easy Conversion Guide should have answered most of your questions, but if you have additional questions - please use the links below or call our Conversion Customer Care Center at 513.321.1594.  If you would like to download a digital copy of the Easy Conversion Guide, click here.
