More than Just My Bank. My Partner.
“We purchased $10 million worth of capital equipment over the past several years. The Bank had the funds readily available and they had the confidence in us to utilize them.”

What Makes First Bank & Trust Different?
FB&T was again awarded the VERIBANC’s highest rating issued to banks that demonstrate exceptional attention to safety, soundness and financial strength.
We have the expertise to be trusted advisors to ownership, their family and their employees. We have dedicated ourselves to working with Chicagoland’s family-owned businesses.
Privately Owned and Operated
First Bank & Trust is privately-held. All of its executive corps are shareholders of the Bank. As owner-operators, our lending team and officers are personally aligned to the long term success of the Bank.
Your're Dealing with Decision Makers
Our commercial lenders sit on the Bank’s Officers Loan Committee. You will be dealing directly with the
Bank’s decision makers for credit requests and structure. Our response will be quick and decisive.
We're a Better Fit for Your Company
We believe our size and structure better aligns itself to the size of your company than that of our larger competition. We will personally be your account officers.
