Business accounts have been our primary source of growth and we are proud of the fact that we can respond to the needs of business customers rapidly and efficiently. In the time it takes most banks to send your application to the loan committee, we can inform you of our decision.

You will also find that our loan officers are interested in your business. We feel that part of the process of developing a business relationship is knowing the owners and understanding the operation.

We specialize in the needs of small- and medium-sized businesses in the St. Louis area. We pride ourselves on being big enough to handle all you banking needs but small enough to really care about your business.
