Washington Trust Bank

Thanks to four generations of wise and prudent leadership, Washington Trust Bank is “…second to none” just as E.H Stanton had said it would be when he bought the bank back in 1919. Over a century later, the Stanton family continues to lead Washington Trust Bank with integrity and commitment—driven by the same goal today as when Washington Trust first opened its doors in 1902: to provide the highest level of quality service and financial stability to our customers.

Quite simply, we will be the best at understanding and meeting the financial needs of our customers. We will focus our unique strengths as a community bank on serving those customers who perceive a distinct value in building long-term relationships with us.


As the oldest and largest privately-held commercial bank in the Northwest, with nearly 750 employees and more than 40 financial centers and offices in Washington, Idaho and Oregon, we enjoy an advantage over our publicly-owned competitors. We are able to base decisions and policies on what’s happening right here in the Northwest—not in distant locales. And because we are independent, we can set our sights on long-term goals rather than quarterly results. We stay focused on doing the right things for our clients and our communities.


Since the beginning, our success has been achieved through exceptional customer service by understanding and meeting the needs of our clients. One of the Bank’s greatest strengths is empowering employees to make decisions that create value for our customers. The bankers at Washington Trust are committed to helping clients achieve their financial goals by offering innovative products and services, coupled with fast decision–making and expert financial guidance.

From our personal banking representatives to our private and commercial bankers and wealth management advisors, Washington Trust has built its reputation on a tradition of creating strong relationships.

The right banking relationship can make a valuable difference. For more than 110 years, Washington Trust has been earning the trust and confidence of individuals and businesses around our region. We understand that there’s no substitute for experience. That’s why our banking specialists are seasoned experts who create custom solutions for clients. So you can trust your banker to make the right decision for you.


Washington Trust continues to promote the economic growth and success of the communities we serve. In addition to the bank's financial contributions, our employees dedicate time, energy, and leadership to hundreds of charitable organizations and worthy causes—making a palpable difference in our communities.


We understand that every customer’s financial needs are unique. We invest the time necessary to gain an in-depth understanding of your specialized requirements. This knowledge helps us avoid the cookie-cutter solutions favored by so many financial institutions, and instead lets us concentrate on developing solutions tailored to your specific needs. Our proactive approach enables us to identify exceptional opportunities and develop innovative offerings that often go beyond typical products and solutions—positioning us as a leader in community banking.
