About Us

Why Independent?
Often, we go beyond what people expect of a bank. But to us, community banking means serving our customers and communities as more than just their bankers. We’re their friends and neighbors, locally invested the same way they are.

But what does that mean for you? It means every time you step in one of our banks – whether in Bad Axe, Grand Rapids, or Traverse City – you’ll get the services of a big bank, the service of a small local bank, and the kind of support that comes from banking with a trusted partner.
