Wintrust Ventures

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


Wintrust began as a start-up in a small suburban storefront. Two decades and more than 140 locations later, Wintrust is one of the largest banks headquartered in Chicago, with almost $20 billion in assets. We know what it is like to start, run and grow a business in this area. We've done it. That experience gives us the perspective necessary to support more than 40,000 local businesses, almost a third of them less than five years old. Wintrust has the expertise, knowledge, and experience to help you reach whatever business goals you have. We know that no business can succeed on its own and each has different needs. Whether the needs are advice, networking, knowledge, financing, investing or wealth management, Wintrust is there to support Chicago's innovation community and accelerate the success of local entrepreneurs.
WE WANT YOU!

As an entrepreneurial organization, we understand that each company is different. We strive to provide custom solutions for all businesses, regardless of size, from start-ups (First Star) to large established businesses (Fourth Star) and everyone in between.

THE WINTRUST DIFFERENCE

We know what it's like to take a risk and start a business from nothing. We grew from a storefront bank to one of the largest banks in Chicago. We never lost that entrepreneurial spirit and strive to support it wherever we find it.  

COMMUNITY INVESTMENT

As Chicago's Bank, we work hard to support and connect to the communities we serve. We want to see the Chicago area grow and thrive.  

BANK&WORK

Every business wants to attract the best and brightest workers. Wintrust can provide your employees with a package of banking, wealth management and mortgage solutions.  

BUSINESS SPOTLIGHTS

Because our business community is so important to us, we like to help you spread the word about how great you are. While other banks feature only large, well-known businesses, we think each of our businesses—no matter what size—is important enough to share their story. Our customers are often featured in ads, informational materials and campaigns.  

PERSONAL FINANCIAL NEEDS

We not only provide exceptional business banking services, but also great personal banking solutions, like free checking and mortgage origination. Through our affiliate, Wintrust Wealth Management, we also offer personalized wealth management planning for private clients and institutions. No matter what the need, we have the right financial tool for the task.  

PARTNERS

As a business owner, the more resources you have, the better off you and your business are. We partner with a number of organizations, including Catapult, The Bunker, SCORE and the National Organization for Women Business Owners (NAWBO) among others, to offer additional business support.

WHAT WE DO.
Wintrust Financial Corporation, with almost $20 billion in assets, engages in the business of providing traditional commercial and community banking services; wealth management services; commercial insurance premium financing; mortgage origination; short-term accounts receivable financing; and certain administrative services, such as data processing of payrolls, billing and treasury management services. Wintrust Community Banks provide community-oriented, personal and commercial banking services to customers located in greater Chicago, Illinois, Indiana and Wisconsin areas through its 15 wholly-owned banking subsidiaries and more than 140 locations.

COMMUNITY BANKING

As the true community banks in our market, we provide a number of programs and products that the big banks can't or won't. This includes our Junior Savers® (kids savings) and Platinum Adventures® (travel club) programs and events. It also includes mortgages and home equity loans, as well as checking and savings accounts.

TREASURY MANAGEMENT

With a full suite of payment and receivable solutions available — including retail and wholesale lockbox, i-BusinessBankingTM, remote deposit capture, and our own MaxSafe® Treasury Management account — your Wintrust Community Bank can meet all of your Treasury Management needs. In fact, we can meet your needs and dramatically cut your costs. This allows our community banks to provide sophisticated products with best-in-class client service.

COMMERCIAL LENDING

As banks become swallowed by larger banks, commercial loan decisions are made further and further away. At Wintrust, we pride ourselves on local decision making and servicing of our commercial loans.
