- "Multinational banking corporation that made billions out of bankrupting the American people, went bankrupt themselves, then got the American people to bail then out. Classy."
- ― Description at LCN.com.
It is a parody of the Bank of America, as it has a similar name and the same colors. It is also a parody of Sovereign Bank, as the text is the same and the bank also has a logo to the left of the title. The Bank of Liberty owns Lombank and Schlongberg Sachs as their ATMs use a Bank of Liberty interface.
In GTA IV, its main branch is located on Columbus Avenue and Calcium Street in Chinatown, Algonquin. In GTA CW, the game booklet shows that Hsin Jaoming and his son Chan may be associates of the bank or have a high role in the bank hierarchy.
