About Malvern Federal

Malvern Federal Savings Bank is a community bank dedicated to fulfilling the financial needs of the people and businesses throughout southeastern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey and the surrounding areas. Malvern Federal offers a complete range of products and services through its network of convenient Financial Centers.

Founded in 1887, Malvern Federal Savings Bank provides its customers with A Rewarding Banking Experience. Local loan and management decisions, award-winning customer service and the latest in products and services help set Malvern Federal apart.

Our staff is actively involved in our communities and the bank readily supports efforts to better the communities we serve. This is not done for the recognition, but as part of our duty to give back, which is the hallmark of a true community bank. We’re strong enough to offer a wide variety of state-of-the-art products and services, but small enough to become closely involved in the communities we serve.
