  • We’re flexible.  Most banks give you a “menu” of products to choose from, and you adjust to what’s available. Here, we adjust to your needs by creating custom products just for you.
  • We’re accessible.  As a Merchants Bank of Indiana customer, you get your personal banker’s cell phone number, because we don’t think you should ever be more than a phone call away from your finances.  Plus, our e-banking technologies bring your account management to you, no matter where you are.
  • We’re responsive.  As a local bank, all decisions are made right here, and we’ll bend over backwards to quickly get you what you need.
  • We come to you.  Too busy to make a trip to the bank?  Don’t worry, we’ll come to your office, take care of any paperwork and let you get on with your day.  Again, we’re just a phone call away.
  • We’re experienced.  Every interaction you have here is with an experienced banker, even if you’re just stopping by for a simple transaction.  At Merchants Bank of Indiana, there are no tellers – just personal bankers.
  • And we never stop working for you.  If you need anything outside our walls, such as investment management, specialized mortgages, insurance, etc., we’ll introduce you to one of our trusted Best in Class partners.
