About River Bank & Trust
In 2006, River Bank & Trust opened with two main goals: 1) establish a community-focused financial institution that would support local decision-making and 2) re-circulate money back into the communities it serves. Since then, River Bank & Trust has grown to be one of the largest state-chartered banks in Alabama, with current assets of $2.9 billion and twenty-two locations throughout the state.
