When the bank opened in 1884, the founders had a clear vision: safeguarding people’s money so they could realize their dreams, and contributing to the community, making it a great place to live and work. In 1951, Russell Bauman joined the State Bank of Kerkhoven. He purchased the bank in 1976 and carried the vision forward with unwavering dedication. The bank has been built on solid values: financial strength, integrity and commitment to the community. 

Today, the vision of our founders still inspires everything we do. 

In July 2005, we changed our name to Financial Security Bank — a name we believe reflects heritage and our promise to our customers. 

Today, we’re proud to serve Kerkhoven, Albertville and the surrounding communities. We’re proud that we can help our friends and neighbors achieve their dreams. We’re proud to help local businesses and farmers thrive. 

We are a community bank, locally owned, and dedicated to providing the resources and services designed to make your financial dreams come true. We will always be willing to take the time to understand your financial needs and offer solutions that will help you achieve your dreams and goals.

Welcome to Financial Security Bank.
