Who We Are

Since our inception, we’ve been part of Wintrust, a financial services company and family of community banks, and a division of Barrington Bank & Trust, a Wintrust Community Bank. That relationship allows us to provide robust, well-rounded services for community associations, but also a variety of financial services to meet any need you may have, professionally or personally. 

At our foundation, we’re focused on

  • Relationship banking: We take the time to get to know our customers in order to be trusted advisors.
  • Growth: We’re prepared to offer customized lending and treasury management services to help associations achieve their long-term goals.
  • Industry excellence: We’re active volunteers and a member of Community Associations Institute (CAI) and several other industry associations.
  • Quick, personalized decisions: All decisions, including credit, are made by people, not algorithms.
