The Independent Bank charter was founded in 1913 by a group of prominent businessmen seeking a local bank that could serve the needs of area ranchers, farmers, tradesmen and shopkeepers. We have grown from those modest origins into a financially sound, community-focused commercial lending institution.
We take great pride in providing capital and guidance to small businesses, enabling them to become viable, vibrant organizations; employing and serving the people. Independent Bank has a scalable set of banking products and professional services to help organizations handle their finances more efficiently as they evolve. We give clients the financial freedom to focus on their actual business.
By building relationships and learning about your business we can discover new opportunities together.
It is our goal to grow organically and through prudent acquisition. A superior credit culture is also a key component to our overall operations.
We pledge to uphold the principals we established many years ago, when banking was exclusively done face-to-face and business relationships were based on personal service and quality products.
We continue to expand our service offerings, most recently introducing other services for the Long Term – including mortgages and wealth management services.
We believe in a strong technology core, and continue to explore systems that enhance customer convenience and security.
We have consistently been recognized with awards and honors for our fiscal performance, innovation, workplaces and culture.
Finally, Independent Bank is proud of its long history of civic involvement and philanthropy. We believe strongly in joining alongside our employees and supporting their passions.
We believe in creating sustainable and effective change in our communities.
Independent Bank pledges to deliver unparalleled personal service and quality financial products to our customers, which will result in our Bank's growth, active support of our communities, rewarding careers for our employees and a superior return to our shareholders. Our goal is to become the bank of choice in each community that we serve.
