Banking with a face. That's what our customers can expect. You don't have to come into a branch to see that face. It's a philosophy. A philosophy of service and commitment that is so ingrained in our culture that our customers and the community define us based on the long-term relationships we have together. Our customers value the importance of long-lasting and durable relationships—relationships that can withstand the unpredictable nature of business cycles and financial environmental changes.
Founded in 1995, First Bank & Trust sought to fill a community and commercial bank void in a Chicagoland banking market plagued by big banks and mergers. Now, over 20 year later, FB&T continues to be the premier community-minded commercial bank in the Chicago area.
As a locally-owned and operated bank, FB&T is focused on building and preserving relationships with middle-market businesses, nonprofit organizations and individuals throughout the Chicago area and its suburbs. Our community roots, commercial capabilities and financial strength continue to foster our growth.
