Celebrating 50 Years in Banking

Partnering with Minnesota-based businesses

Fidelity Bank 50th Logo

Fidelity Bank first opened its doors to customers in Edina, Minn. on October 8, 1970. The bank was originally chartered in September 1970 as Southwest Fidelity State Bank of Edina and affiliated with Fidelity Bank and Trust in northeast Minneapolis. Fifty years later, it is one of the few remaining locally owned and operated community banks.

Initially, the bank focused on consumer services and real estate lending. However, in 1978, under the leadership of then-president Jim Morton, the bank’s focus shifted to commercial banking —a move that proved pivotal to Fidelity Bank’s long-lasting success.

Today, Fidelity Bank serves primarily small to mid-size businesses and offers a full spectrum of business banking services, including commercial lending, mortgage warehouse funding, equipment financing, equipment leasing, cash management, and factoring services.

This year we planned a party but didn't plan a global pandemic.

In lieu of this year's party, we asked people to virtually celebrate with us. See some of the videos below.

It's not too late, if you still want to share an anniversary video!
