Our Story

Making a Difference Wherever We Are.

Starion Financial is a $1 billion banking organization, giving customers global spending and money management power.

What really sets us apart is our style of banking, which dates to our beginnings in small town North Dakota.

In 1969, we purchased a bank that had been a cornerstone of the Oakes business community since 1886, when Dakota was still a territory. We bought our Ellendale bank in 1970, and stayed in those two markets for 20 years before expanding to Bismarck and Mandan. In 2006, we grew to Madison, Wisconsin, and we proudly began serving Fargo-Moorhead-West Fargo in March 2008. In October 2011, Starion purchased banks in Bottineau, Dunseith and Rolla.

Our bank legacy

Our legacy is a style of banking that leans heavily on integrity and community involvement.

In a small town, you are only as good as your reputation, and your reputation is only as good as your actions. That's the kind of accountability we run the organization with today.

We give every transaction the individual attention that matters of money deserve. We treat customers with regard for their personal dreams. Our phones are answered by people, not automated machines. We work decisively and manage our banks by local decisions. We seek to retain bankers with deep experience, so they have the knowledge to be sound advisors. We invest generously of ourselves and our financial resources in improving our communities.

Please give us the opportunity to help with your financial needs.
