About Opportunity Bank of Montana
Opportunity Bank of Montana opened our doors in Helena in 1922 as American Building and Loan. In 1972, the name of the bank changed to American Savings & Loan Association. By 1980, the Bank had grown to include branch locations in Bozeman, Butte, and Townsend. In 1991, the Bank changed its charter from a “savings & loan” to a “savings bank” and thus the name changed to American Federal Savings Bank. Additional growth came in 2012 by way of acquisition, when American Federal double its branch network and increased its footprint across Montana. In 2014, the Bank applied to the State of Montana to change our charter from a federal savings & loan to a state-chartered commercial bank. Along with this change also came our newly rebranded name of – Opportunity Bank of Montana. In 2017 the Bank acquired Ruby Valley Bank in Madison county bringing the Bank’s asset size to 800 million and making it the fifth largest Bank in Montana.
Today, our customers remain the driving force behind our success and the Bank’s nearly century-long commitment to them has earned it a reputation as a leader in community banking. Opportunity Bank of Montana has grown into a full-service community bank with three Helena locations, two in Bozeman, as well as branches in Big Timber, Billings, Butte, Hamilton, Livingston, Missoula, Great Falls, Sheridan, Townsend, and Twin Bridges. Opportunity Bank is proud of its Montana roots and is honored to be a partner in your community.
We at Opportunity Bank of Montana believe that being part of community means giving back, because when you grow; we grow. This is why we reinvest in our communities. In addition to donating to numerous charities, we also sponsor Dave Ramsey Foundations in Personal Finance in 16 high schools across the state to help our young adults enter into the working world with the financial savvy to navigate it safely.
