Safe Harbor Financial was conceived in 2015 as a response to the underbanking crisis plaguing the cannabis industry. Despite states liberalizing their cannabis laws, federal prohibition means major financial institutions are unwilling to serve cannabis-related businesses.

Into this gap, Safe Harbor Financial stepped up. 

Our commitment to delivering unmatched financial services has earned us a reputation for excellence in both personalized banking and bespoke regulatory advice. Over the past seven years, we’ve managed more than 600 accounts, processed over $12 billion in cannabis funds, and operated in 20 states.

Our Scottsdale cannabis banking services include checking and savings accounts, online banking, consumer payments, electronic tax payments, direct deposit payroll, and more.

However, we also provide marijuana and hemp banking in Scottsdale – helping the CBD, hemp, and other ancillary industries. We appreciate that financial services are a necessity, not a luxury. With our help, you can succeed while remaining 100% accountable and transparent about your finances.

Let our team of experts take your business to the next level – join Safe Harbor Financial.

Get ready to succeed with marijuana banking in Scottsdale

Scottsdale is among the newest cities in America to adopt legal recreational cannabis use. After medical use was legalized in 2010 through the page of Proposition 203, the first licensed sales occurred in December 2012. Just under a decade later, recreational sales began. 

As part of the Phoenix Metropolitan region, Scottsdale is a major hub for the cannabis industry in the area – hosting the Southwest Cannabis Conference and Expo.

However, the nascent industry is still in its early days and needs an experienced and competent financial institution to provide guidance and advice. 

Safe Harbor Financial already helped the Colorado cannabis industry reach maturity; and now, we’re ready to share our insights about cannabis banking in Scottsdale. 

We’re one of the cannabis banking sector’s leading lights. Nor do we waver in our commitment to our clients and our regulatory rigor. Indeed, we work closely with regulators, legislators, and law enforcement to ensure that you’re 100% compliant even as the rules evolve.
