Citizens in Okla. launches military-focused digital bank

Citizens Bank of Edmond in Oklahoma has launched a digital bank for members of the military.

The $350 million-asset bank launched Roger, which builds off a mortgage platform it created last year. An app is also available for the platform.

“Years in the making, this moment is a testament to the unwavering dedication of countless individuals who believe in our mission,” the bank said in a LinkedIn post.

“We’re not just introducing a digital banking platform,” the post added. “We’re delivering on a promise to relentlessly support our military members through advocacy and education.”

Jill Castilla, the bank’s CEO and a military veteran, decided to launch to platform after she and her husband tried unsuccessfully to use VA financing to buy a home.
