Member Spotlight: TrailWest Bank

TrailWest Bank is an FDIC insured, locally owned, independent bank serving western Montana. For over three decades, TrailWest has provided the people and businesses of Ravalli, Missoula, Mineral, and Flathead Counties with a wide range of secure and dependable financial services—all with a commitment to personal service. 

The mission of TrailWest Bank is to build loyal, long-term relationships based on trust, prosperity, and community. Over the years, TrailWest has experienced considerable growth, and continues to remain fiscally strong; meeting the ever-changing needs of the communities served. Today we live in an environment where many believe that bigger is better. Banks and other businesses are consolidating to streamline and achieve economies of scale. By streamlining, big banks are losing the personal touch that TrailWest feels is so important, and their team looks at this trend as an opportunity to promote relationship banking.

TrailWest Bank has set high customer service standards and recognizes that customer relationships are the most important element in keeping customers satisfied. TrailWest differentiates its banking services from that of larger corporations by taking care of our customers’ needs by creating a high value-added experience, offering a wide range of financial services for both personal and business customers. They also specialize in small business, medical practice, real estate, and agricultural lending. 

At TrailWest Bank, they take pride in helping you achieve your financial and business goals with customizable, creative lending solutions. Whether you need help starting or purchasing a business, investing in property, a new home, or are looking for a new set of wheels or boat for those trips to Flathead, their knowledgeable Loan Officers will be happy to help. The TrailWest team has real-world experience in industries like real estate, construction, agriculture, and more. 

Being locally owned and operated, TrailWest invests directly back into the communities served. They are proud to serve Missoula County with 7 convenient locations: Missoula (4), Frenchtown, Bonner, and Lolo. With over 120 employees, their strong network is ready to serve you wherever you travel throughout Western Montana.
