A Neighborhood Bank
(A wholly-owned subsidiary of AmBank Holdings, Inc.)
American Bank and Trust began as a neighborhood bank on the Hilltop in Rock Island, Illinois in 1968. It began with a simple idea – that customers should receive the same kind of friendly and personalized service we would appreciate ourselves. This simple philosophy has helped us grow to become a locally-owned regional financial services company in the Quad Cities, Illinois/Iowa and northeast Illinois market areas (Kane County). Our primary emphasis is to provide excellent service at a fair price and to establish, develop and retain long-term, relationship banking opportunities. We are passionate and accountable for the financial success of each client served. Our clients enjoy a complete range of custom-tailored services such as: personal banking, commercial banking, private banking, cash management, consumer loans, residential mortgage loans, trust services and wealth management solutions all delivered with courtesy, competency and concern.
Much of our history also revolves around our focus on the needs of local businesses. We believe there will always be a place for a bank that provides personalized service and local decision making.
American Bank and Trust endorses a community-oriented spirit, fostered by an experienced, energetic leadership team that includes a unique blend of business entrepreneurs and experienced banking professionals. It’s a perspective that has served our clients well, and has also allowed us to expand our product offerings and expertise in two separate and distinct market areas.
While a lot has changed since we opened our doors in 1968, some very important things haven't. Our passion to serve families who call this place home. Our commitment to the companies who ignite economic growth. And our pride in being an independent community bank. We will continue to prove every day that together we can.
