Bank of the West

Like its parent company, the belief that a bank should have a positive impact on society drives Bank of the West. At a time when people demand more from companies, we are taking action to help protect the planet, improve people’s lives, and strengthen communities.

We are investing where we can have a real impact: supporting energy transition, enabling female entrepreneurs, and financing innovative start-ups. Through digital channels, branches, and other offices across the US, Bank of the West provides financial tools and resources to 1.8 million individuals, families, and businesses across the US with a presence in 24 states.
