Investing in People. Creating Opportunities. Making a Difference.

We’re excited to open our first full-service bank in City Center, because we want to help. To help pave the way for rebuilding downtown. To help people who are looking for a uniquely personal brand of banking. To help individuals and businesses that share values of commitment to community and paying it forward.

We love to use what we do to build relationships and make a difference. We’d love to connect with you to see what you need … and what we can do, together.


A Long Twin Cities History.

Bell Bank has provided banking and financial services as a community bank for more than half a century. (In fact, our mortgage division was founded by Minneapolis civic leader David C. Bell even earlier, back in 1880.) As a Twin Cities regional hub, we offer banking in and around the Twin Cities – as well as full-service locations in outstate Minnesota, Arizona and North Dakota.

Today, Bell is one of the nation’s largest family-owned banks. We’re committed to growing with our community – and excited about our commitment here in the heart of Minneapolis.
