As an independent commercial bank, we are uniquely qualified to serve this market and compete successfully against the mega banks. We are simply more responsive, agile, flexible, and attentive.

With a strong financial position and a talented team of bankers and financial advisors, we are poised to grow throughout the Chicagoland area.

Our mission is simple- to create advocates. In other words, it is to provide our clients with products and services so great that they tell their friends.
