Who We Are

We fly Delta and bleed Coca-Cola. We use our Cajun flare to find the best products that fit your specific needs and make your moolah work for you. We’re grounded in more than 80 years of helping everyday people in Northeast Louisiana do what matters most to them and their families.

At Centric, you won’t just bank better — you’ll live better too.
