Attention: You are now leaving the Wintrust website.
In 1991, Wintrust’s current CEO and one of the company’s founders, Ed Wehmer, set up shop in a northern Chicago suburb with a simple goal: to provide an alternative to the big banks. Now, more than twenty-five years and 150 locations later, we’ve stayed true to that original mission.
We don't just do one thing. Our banks, companies and divisions specialize in a variety of services to make us a one-stop shop for any financial need.
At Wintrust, you're valued by more than just the contents of your account. And, every customer is our most important customer. That's how we were built.
We believe in making our communities better. Our philanthropic focus is part of our foundation.
