Message from the President & CEOAbout Us | Mark Hansen Photgraphy

Welcome to First Trust & Savings Bank!


We have been serving Whiteside and upper Rock Island counties for over a century, and over the years, we’ve grown in size and services, but have continued to adhere to sensible and conservative standards that have kept us safe and secure for generations.


Experienced local bankers that offer hometown service have since become a rarity, but will always remain as part of our stamp of excellence.  Whether banking with us in person, by phone, or online, we’re always available to offer you personalized one-on-one service.


We’re proud of our long history and feel accomplished for the innovative ways we strive to serve our clients and will continue to keep moving forward as the region’s premier financial institution.  We invite you to become part of our future!


Thank you for visiting our website; we hope you will return often.


Mark J. Hanson

President & CEO
