Welcome To Bank & Trust Company
Bank & Trust Company is not a banking giant by today’s standards. Rather, we are a unique community bank based in Litchfield, IL, with seven branches serving primarily rural markets in several counties in south central Illinois including Montgomery, Macoupin, Christian, and Sangamon.
We offer most of the services offered by regional banks, but are still small enough that customers are known by name, not by a number. We offer extensive trust and wealth management services to clients, which is uncommon for most community banks. The bank has been around since 1902 and the philosophy of the management has remained the same – to deliver products and services which meet the needs and wants of customers on a timely, competitive priced basis. The Board and management fanatically pursue providing extraordinary customer service and expect nothing less. Our vision statement is “Every customer leaves with a smile and refers a friend.” By possessing core values that are tightly linked to this vision statement, Bank & Trust Company truly is different from other banks.
Bank Different. Bank Better.
We are proud to sponsor EverFi in our local high schools!
Bank & Trust Company was the recipient of the coveted Illinois Bank Community Service Award at the 123rd (2014) Annual Illinois Bankers Association Conference and Trade Show held in Chicago recently.
A committee of judges including former Governor Jim Edgar, University of Illinois Springfield President Susan Koch, Terry Saber, President of WIPFLI CPAs and Consultants, and several current and retired banking professionals selected three banks for the award. Now-retired President and Chief Executive Officer Kent Redfern and Senior Vice President Don Krager accepted the award on behalf of the bank from IBA Chief Executive Officer Linda Koch.
Bank & Trust Company was praised for its contributions and work in financial literacy education and in conduction life choices courses in local schools. The bank was cited for its community involvement in sponsoring events and in encouraging its employees to be personally involved in local projects, events and organizations.
Over 400 Illinois bankers and bank vendors attended the conference.
