All About Banner Bank's History Mission and Values
At Banner, we 'Do the right thing.'
ESG represents new ways of categorizing the good efforts our colleagues undertake every day to serve our clients, investors and communities.
More than 130 years ago, we started with core values that will never go out of style: listen, learn and help people and businesses reach their goals.Our team of experts focuses completely on you, providing the tailored solutions, expert guidance and local decision-making you need to succeed. Our focus on offering outstanding value along with our financial strength and stability are key reasons Forbes named us one of the 100 Best Banks in America the past seven consecutive years, and why Newsweek selected us as one of the Most Trustworthy Companies in the World in their new 2023 study. It is also why Bauer Financial has repeatedly assigned Banner its top, five-star rating for more than 10 years.
Of equal importance is the community spirit upon which Banner Bank was founded as a small thrift in 1890. With more than $15 billion in assets and locations in Idaho, Washington, Oregon and California, we understand our role in the economic ecosystem and we take that responsibility seriously. In addition to being a source of capital to personal banking clients and businesses of all sizes, we place a high importance on contributing to the communities we serve. Last year, we engaged with more than 1,000 charitable and community causes across our footprint by contributing nearly $2 million and thousands of hours volunteering.
From thoughtfully designed personal banking services to full-service, leading-edge commercial banking solutions, we’re proud to earn your business and help you dream big and achieve more.
