Our first home in Libby Montana

BORN & BRED IN MONTANA... In 1913, First Montana Bank was born in Libby, Montana to fulfill a simple, very Montana ideal: Help neighbors and community to thrive and grow.

KEEPING IT LOCAL... Since our start nearly 110 years ago, our small local hometown bank has grown to ten branches serving eight communities throughout western Montana in Libby, Troy, Kalispell, Missoula, Butte, Anaconda, Helena, and Bozeman.

WITH YOU, WHEREVER YOU ARE... We love to see you in our lobbies and drive-throughs, but we know convenience - anywhere and anytime day or night - is important to you. So we're dedicated to making certain you have access to the most recent and secure digital tools available. You can rely on access to mobile banking, online banking, fraud detection tools and instant account alerts, Zelle® P2P for sending money to family and friends, debit card management tools with spending insights, and more.

When you find yourself away from home and in need of an ATM, First Montana Bank is part of a nationwide MoneyPass® ATM network of more than 37,000 surcharge-free ATMs. Just go to www.moneypass.com to locate an ATM near you.

RECOGNIZED FOR DOING THE RIGHT THING... We're dedicated to helping our customers and our communities reach their financial goals and prosper. Which is probably why First Montana Bank has been awarded the Forbes Best-In-State Bank designation two years running.* And why the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis has rated First Montana Bank as "Outstanding" for Community Reinvestment. We're pretty proud of that.

TRUE TO OUR MISSION... Our mission is more than a statement. It reflects who we are and what you can expect from us: “First Montana Bank provides innovative and secure financial services to our communities through a personal approach, resulting in economic growth for our customers, employees, and shareholders.”


Creating a positive experience for you is at the core of everything we do!
