About Us

First Bankers Trust Company, N.A. has been West-Central Illinois' leading local bank since 1946.

Our purpose is to help our customers and communities achieve their dreams.

We've fulfilled this vision by offering a comprehensive suite of modern digital banking products and services to meet our customer's needs; how, where, and when they want it most.

We proudly offer competitive rates and expert service on home mortgages, consumer, business, and agricultural loans. Additionally, we offer consumer banking services, business banking, and more.

In 2021, we established our Buck Land Funding division, providing professional lending for hunting land in the Midwest and in 2022, we launched our MHC Funding division, which specializes in the financing of mobile home communities and parks. 

Our Mission

Our mission is doing what's right and doing that better every single day. We believe First Bankers will become Western IL's premier financial services company with that vision. Always aiming to surpass our customers, shareholders, employees, and communities needs.


First Bankers will never settle for second best in pursuit of this goal. We combine leading operational practices, superior financial performance, social responsibility, and an absolute commitment to the highest ethical standards.


The bedrock of this plan is our people. We work tirelessly to be the employer of choice - attracting the most talented and dedicated people from diverse backgrounds and empowering them with a unified goal: be better today than you were yesterday.


We aggressively pursue prudent, profitable growth in current operations and cultivate new revenue streams. To grow our competitive advantages, every division must build a highly motivated team that always aims to exceed our customer's expectations.


When First Bankers leads our industry in customer satisfaction, employee gratification, and investor returns, the first chapter of our mission will be closed.


First Bankers Trustshares, Inc. is a bank holding company incorporated on August 25, 1988 and headquartered in Quincy, Illinois. First Bankers Trust Company, N. A., a subsidiary of First Bankers Trustshares, Inc.
