Founded in 1968, First Interstate Bank has over 120 branches in Oregon, Washington, Montana, Idaho, South Dakota, and Wyoming. The bank acquired Oregon-based Bank of the Cascades in 2017 and all eight former Bank of the Cascade branches in Bend now operate as First Interstate Bank. First Interstate is committed to providing clients with exemplary service and supporting the communities it serves with leadership and resources. Personal banking services include checking, savings, check cashing, escrow services, consumer loans (home, car, personal, etc.), and more. Business banking services include checking and savings, agri-business loans, ag mortgage loans, letters of credit, and commercial loans. First Interstate Bank places high value on giving back to the community and lives that value by sponsoring special events and community programs, and by partnering with local nonprofit organizations. The bank also promotes environmentally sound practices across all branches and departments, and works to reduce the environmental impact of its operations through waste reduction, energy usage, paper consumption and recycling. First Interstate Bank is proud to have earned an “Outstanding” rating from its bank examiners—the highest rating a bank can receive.
