Our Story

We're More Than a Community Bank

At Mission Valley Bank, we're a full service, independent commercial bank that is locally-owned, community minded and relationship driven. Building long term relationships, we're as dedicated to our client's success as they are. Mission Valley Bank exists because there’s a demand for a bank like ours where you are important, your bankers know your name, and service exceeds your expectations.

Mission Valley Bank opened in July 2001. Headquartered in Sun Valley, California, our organizers and founders are local business people and bankers who have worked in - and served - this community for many years. We understand the importance of developing and building strong relationships within the communities we serve, providing exceptional financial solutions and acting as Trusted Advisors to each of our clients. We take our role as Trusted Advisors very seriously - so much so, that each year since the inception of the San Fernando Valley Business Journal's annual "Most Trusted Advisor Awards", Mission Valley Bank Business Bankers have received the honor of being named "Most Trusted Advisor - Business Banking".

Our service philosophy is based on truly knowing our clients, working to understand their unique financial needs and responding with solid solutions that will help them achieve their goals. In short, earning our role as Trusted Advisors every day. Our familiarity with local industries, ability to make decisions quickly, and a team of dedicated individuals who are involved in the communities we serve, are the foundation from which we’ve built our success.

We're on your side, helping you make smart financial decisions to improve your business and your quality of life. We are dedicated to providing each client with the financial tools they need to build and grow their business.

At Mission Valley Bank, we treat you the way we want to be treated — with professionalism and courtesy. We greet our customers by name and are glad to see you when you stop by one of our offices. It’s our pleasure to assist you whenever you need us.

We continue to grow and thrive side by side with our clients.

Serving Our Communities Since Day One

Mission Valley Bank is committed to serving the communities within our marketplace, as this has been a founding principle since our inception. We are truly committed to finding the right financial solutions to aid businesses in their growth and in the fulfillment of their dreams. Understanding and helping improve the communities where our employees live and work is an important component to our success and our mission.

Strong communities thrive on personal relationships. At Mission Valley Bank we believe that to truly serve a community, you must be an active and contributing member. This belief has made our community commitment an integral part of our philosophy.  Our community roots run deep. Our team is motivated by a strong desire to be an integral part of the communities we serve. Our bankers benefit personally and professionally from civic involvement by developing lasting relationships and a better understanding of the needs of the areas where we live, work and play.

In 2015, Mission Valley Bank founded our Give Where You Live program and is proud to feature nonprofit organizations within our community. We encourage you to join us to "give where you live" to help support those worthwhile causes. Mission Valley Bank’s local roots run deep, motivated by the desire to be an integral part of the community we serve. A strong community thrives on personal relationships and Mission Valley Bank supports – and is honored to be supported by – the Santa Clarita Valley community.

At Mission Valley Bank, we’re more than a community bank. We’re a full-service, independent, commercial bank that is locally-owned, community minded and relationship driven. We’re proud to have earned our reputation as Trusted Advisors. Mission Valley Bank is as dedicated to our customers’ success as they are. We appreciate their business and welcome the opportunity to earn yours.

In support of this community commitment, we are proud to be recognized as a long time participant in the Community Development Financial Institutions Fund (CDFI).

Our participation in the CDFI Fund has enabled Mission Valley Bank to reach far beyond the local communities we serve.
