An independently owned community bank, Charter Bank operates one location: 1010 West Clairemont Avenue, Eau Claire, Wisconsin. As an Eau Claire banking institution, our headquarters emphasizes that we are local and here to serve our community with local decision-making to benefit our community. As we are pleased to remind our many loyal customers, Charter Bank is “Good For You . . . . . And Our Community, Too!”
Founded in 1980, we were a de novo (new) bank, modestly starting operations in a trailer on Clairemont Avenue. Today, with assets surpassing $560 million, we remain on Clairemont Avenue in an attractive building constructed in 2006 a few yards from where we began. The difference is that now we are the largest community bank in the Chippewa Valley with excellent ratings in the banking industry.
Our growth is the result of our dedication to our customers, providing them financial products which exceed expectations, including our Bright Future membership, College Fund, high-yield savings accounts, and interest-bearing checking accounts.
When one reviews the experience of our lending team, the result is that our lending team has over 200 combined years of lending experience! As a result, we have shown exceptional growth in loan clients and in loan balances.
The foundation of our success, however, is the loyal patronage of thousands of Chippewa Valley residents. For that reason, Charter Bank is a partner with the entire community to work together toward a better future.
