Loans & Financing

Our mission is simple: be the best at understanding and meeting the financial needs of our customers, creating a distinct value for our clients.

It starts by understanding that each business is different, with unique characteristics. We recognize that one size does not fit all. We take the time to get to know you and your business to create solutions that directly fit your needs.

Local decision makers

When your business needs an answer, you’ll get it quickly from someone who knows your business and your community, not from some distant office or 800 number. Rooted in the Pacific Northwest since 1902, with offices in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho, we’re committed to growing and investing in the communities we call home.

Relationship Banking

Our business bankers are more than mere lenders. They are advisors, confidants, consultants and friends. A single point of contact that can guide you through your financial needs, so you can stay focused on managing your business.

The Privately-held advantage

As an independent, privately held bank led by the fourth generation of the Stanton family, we are able to set our sights on long-term goals, not quarterly results. That means we focus on doing the right thing for our clients and our community.

Hire Experts and Help Them Excel

Our business strategy is simple. Hire the best and brightest business banking minds from around the region, and give them the tools to succeed. Our bankers have the authority, flexibility, and support to meet the needs and exceed the expectations of every client.
