The essence of Washington Trust Bank
In an age of mega banks, Washington Trust Bank is unique. Privately owned for our 115-year history, Washington Trust Bank operates from the same underlying set of beliefs and values that our founders did. Generations of leadership gave us our guiding philosophies. Collectively, we call them Watrustology.
The story of the Northwest's oldest and largest private bank
Many things have changed over the last 115 years. One that hasn't: Washington Trust Bank is still built on long-term relationships with the people and businesses of the Northwest. We remain private and proudly independent so that this will never change.
Our collective ideology in one word
Watrustology is our history, philosophies, and guiding principles. It's doing whatever it takes to create long-term prosperity for our clients while dedicating ourselves to supporting the communities in which we live.
