Serving communities to get things done.

Why Minnwest?

Simply put, you are our first priority. We're a family-owned banking operation that's big enough to get large deals done and small enough to truly listen and work with you as you work toward your individual goals. We have first-hand knowledge of the challenges and risks you face, and most importantly, we're building lasting relationships with doers like you every day. We don't just say our customers come first, we live and breathe it. That's our commitment to you.

Committed to Relationships First

At Minnwest Bank, we build relationships with doers-people who begin with a dream and are committed to turning it into reality.

 We believe relationships develop between people who are receptive, responsive, and have shared values.

We know relationships don't come easy-they start with handshakes, continue with conversations, and grow into shared commitments that withstand the test of time. 

Honoring Our Roots

Like many of our customers, Minnwest is a family-owned business that keeps its long-term commitments. We founded Minnwest Bank during the 1987 farm crisis because we recognized how important community banks are to thriving communities. Since that time, we've steadfastly served and supported our communities through good times and bad.

As our customer footprint grew and expanded into urban areas, so did we. Today, Minnwest is one of Minnesota's largest banks-with 36 bank locations and more than $2 billion in assets-and one of Minnesota's ag lending leaders.
