"Take care of the customer," a formula we've kept since 1927
About Bank Forward
A sound financial plan includes more than just banking, so we offer an integrated, comprehensive suite of banking, insurance, investment and tax solutions.
Our Commitment to You
You have financial goals. They’re based on something important: the life you want to live or the business you want to build. This is why the first thing we do is get to know you—not your account balances or investment assets—YOU. We want to know about you—who you are, what’s important to you and how you define success. These are things that shape your financial needs, now and in the future. Then, we craft a plan to help you meet them.
To better serve you, we offer a wide variety of products and services to meet your needs. Just as importantly, we provide ongoing education and benefits that build our employees’ skill sets. In 2000, ownership was expanded to employees through an Employee Stock Ownership Plan. With our ESOP, each employee shareholder is committed to your success and the success of our organization.
Our Commitment to Our Employees
We place the prosperity of our customers and our communities as our highest priority. From a full lineup of products for personal banking to sophisticated cash management tools for the largest of corporations, we offer everything you need to simplify the financial side of your life.
Our agents have the consultative expertise and experience to formulate a well-designed risk management plan for you.
