First Bank & Trust

About Us

First Bank & Trust is one of South Dakota's largest family- and employee-owned banks, with 22 locations in 17 towns in South Dakota and Minnesota.

For more than a century, financial institutions led by generations of the Fishback family have proven that banking professionals can be conservative risk managers and entrepreneurs at the same time. The same entrepreneurial spirit that led Horace Fishback Sr. to open his first check-cashing station in Brookings, SD in 1880 drives us toward our vision: To grow a diversified independent financial corporation that excels in delivering community banking services and providing niche products nationwide.

We are proud to be a family- and employee-owned community bank. Our 700+ employees take pride in our Be the 1 Service Culture principles - and it shows! We offer all of the strength and capabilities you might expect from a big-bank, but still have the flexibility and responsiveness of an independent local bank.

Let us show you how we make banking EASY.
