Seattle Bank first opened as a family-owned mortgage company in the 1940s. Seattle Mortgage Company helped tens of thousands of people achieve homeownership in the 50 years that followed, becoming one of the most well-known and reliable local brands in the Puget Sound region. In the early 2000s, we expanded to offer traditional branch banking and evolved into a boutique bank for clients with interwoven personal and business financial needs that require customized products and personalized service.

We continue to redesign the banking experience with tailored services and leading-edge technology, demonstrating the ease, satisfaction and peace of mind that exceptional banking provides. Complex transactions — both loans and deposits — are routine at Seattle Bank. When we collaborate to solve specific challenges, our clients see that we are not just a bank. We are an extension of their teams.

Whether offering a borrowing solution in a retail brand’s digital channel or providing banking-as-a-service to a fintech, Seattle Bank orchestrates the trifecta of business, technology, and compliance strategies to create successful and sustainable partner banking collaborations.
