Our Operating Principles
American Bank & Trust is a locally owned and locally managed bank that has been serving the area since the late 1800’s. We pursue a growth strategy that affords us the capacity to meet and serve all of our customers’ financial needs and make available to the customer all of the financial products they desire in today’s fast-paced world. We are a service-oriented organization with independent leadership based in our communities.
Fair and competitive principles guide our pricing standards in the customer’s use of the financial products that we offer and the ones they choose to use. The bank must be profitable and maintain strong capital in order to continue to serve our customers and their needs and in order to meet the goals of the bank stakeholders.
It is the desire of bank ownership and management to be recognized as having competent, professional, and friendly bank staff with a reputation of unquestioned integrity. Our employees are committed to community involvement, and we strive to provide them a comfortable working environment, competitive compensation, and quality benefits.
Creative Freedom is what we deliver our customers. It also drives our staff, because it’s an expression of our purpose.
The pursuits of freedom and creativity in life are both human and hopeful. Together, they’re also an invitation to use imagination to engineer new solutions in all facets of life.
Where an elite level of financial expertise overlaps with individuality and empowerment, great things can happen. That’s where you’ll find the very particular hue of difference that distinguishes our employees and relationships.
Where what if meets why not, you’ll find us hard at work.
