Sterling Federal Bank
Banks & Credit Unions Banking
Sterling Federal Bank has been serving families in Northwest Illinois (and, more recently, Clinton and Bettendorf, Iowa) since 1885.
There were just 38 states when Sterling Federal Bank was born; Grover Cleveland was President of the United States; and our hometown of Sterling, IL was only about 50 years old. We are truly a community bank. As a mutual bank, we are owned by the people and are in existence for the people we serve.
We invest heavily in our communities because we understand that if our communities are thriving: the people in them will thrive as well. The members of our Board of Directors are experienced local leaders who are committed to our communities.
As a result, all loan decisions are made quickly by people who understand the dynamics of our local economics and the needs of our local communities.
