Let's Talk

Successful, highly competitive business owners and high-net-worth individuals often carve out a completely unique niche. In fact, that’s how First Business was founded. As the first bank in the Midwest to focus solely on business, we started small with very few clients — and genuinely listened to their needs, deliberately crafting inventive, individual solutions designed to spur growth.

We all know that bigger isn’t always better, so through the years we’ve grown only when it makes sense. You benefit from our purposefully smaller client list and niche banking model through your access to our individual, attentive planning, innovative vision, and best practices expertise.

Our clients often initially seek business banking, specialty financing, or private wealth strategies, and then experience success, leading them to implement more of our ideas and connect with our resources and services. We strive for multi-faceted, beneficial partnerships, because at First Business, one good thing leads to another.
