First Republic Bank is fairly new — founded in 1985 — and offers a variety of financial services, including private banking, private business banking and wealth management. Most of the bank’s branches are in California, but you also can find them in New York City; the Boston area; Portland, Oregon; Palm Beach, Florida; Greenwich, Connecticut; and Jackson, Wyoming.
So, what is private banking? This type of banking gives clients a more personalized experience and the opportunity to work with a dedicated banker. Private banking customers receive individualized advice to help them meet their financial goals, as well as access to a variety of wealth management services and special interest rates.
Typically, private banking is available only to individuals who have at least $1 million in assets. Some banking institutions, though, accept less, and others set the benchmark higher.
First Republic Bank is more accessible to the average consumer, with the minimum opening balance on a Passbook Savings account set at $500. However, the bank’s highest interest rate is available only for balances of $1 million or more, and First Republic CDs all require a minimum $10,000 deposit.
If you’re financially well-off enough to benefit from this private bank, find out how to take full advantage of your First Republic login today.

If you’ve forgotten the username or password to your First Republic login, no worries — the bank’s website and mobile app allow you to retrieve them. Follow these steps from your computer:
- On the Banking Online Sign In page, click “Forgot your username?” or “Forgot your password?” depending on which one you need.
- If you forgot your username, it will prompt you to a new page. Enter the email address tied to your account and then click “Send Username.”
- If you forgot your password, it will prompt you to a new page. Enter your username for the account and then click “Submit.”
The bank’s app has a “Forgot password?” option but not one for your username. So if you’ve forgotten your username, your best bet is to use the bank’s website, not the mobile app, to retrieve it. To avoid this issue next time, you can enable facial recognition or fingerprint access, if available on your device.
Viewing your bank statements isn’t difficult from either the online platform or the mobile banking app.
- Log in to your First Republic account.
- Tap “Statements & Documents.”
- View your banking statement and click the share icon if you want to send, print or share the PDF.
You also can make sure the bank sends you your statement each time it’s ready. To do this:
- Log in to your account and visit “Statements & Documents” and then “Statement Preferences.”
- Check the box underneath “Send me an email” to receive a new email each time your statement comes out.
- Click “Save” to save this preference.
