Midwest Bank of Western Illinois

Trust Services

Midwest Bank of Western Illinois features the only locally controlled, full-service Trust Department in Warren, Henderson and Mercer Counties and provides a full range of trust and investment services. The department features three trust officers with nearly 40 combined years of experience and industry certifications for securities brokerage, life and health insurance, annuities and financial planning and administration.
It is a common misconception that people think a trust or trust department is for only those fortunate few who have large estates or large sums of money to invest. The truth is that the trust department helps many individuals at all levels of wealth and income. Take a look at all of the types of services available at Midwest Bank; from a bill paying account for an elderly relative and retirement accounts for farmers and small business owners to trust and estate administration to preserve family relationships and wealth. The trust department really does appeal to all individuals searching for valuable and convenient financial services.
