How We're Different

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version

At Wintrust, you can Have It AllTM — the resources of a “big bank” with the customer service that only a group of community banks can provide. Wintrust Community Banks are big enough for you, your family and your business to Have It All, yet we are small enough to care.

We are the bank you are looking for. We’re large enough to handle the most complex Trust and Wealth Management issues, but we are small enough to hand out cookies and coffee in the lobby, give lollipops to kids, and even have dog biscuits for “man’s best friend.” When you call, we’ll answer the phone and know you by name. Whether your business needs to refinance its office building, you need a checking account, or your daughter needs a mortgage for her first home, we’ll get it done for you.

The Community Bank Difference:

There are several factors that distinguish us as a real community bank. First, we are locally run. Decisions are made by people who know you and care about your needs. As a result, you gain from our responsive service and true understanding of what the community needs. Through this understanding we can tailor products to meet the needs of local consumers.

Second, there is on-site control over all services, products, loan approvals, and interest rates. Because we're locally managed, we can set our rates right here. We don't have to get them approved by a corporate office somewhere else. And we don't have the overhead that big banks do, so we can pass the savings on to you.

Third, deposits of the bank are invested back into the community in the form of business and residential loans. So in a way, you can help enhance your hometown, just by being a part of community banking.

Finally, we are dedicated to the financial support of the local community in order to make it a better place to live.
