About the Company

We are a not-for-profit financial cooperative. This means we make decisions for the benefit of all our customers, whom we call member-owners, because each one has a stake, or ownership, in our cooperative. GTE doesn’t make a profit just to turn it over to anonymous shareholders. The money we earn is returned to our “shareholders” – our members – in the form of higher dividends, lower rates, as well as new products and services.
GTE Financial is one of the largest locally owned and operated financial institutions in Tampa Bay, Florida. Serving our community since 1935 is just as important as delivering exceptional financial services. We contribute significant time and donations to meaningful charitable organizations and agencies throughout the neighborhoods we serve.
