Our Story

We're a full-service community bank that delivers with a personal touch.

First Bank and Trust is now a division of BankPlus.

Since 1991, First Bank and Trust (FBT) has continuously looked for better ways to serve its customers.  To this end, effective March 1, 2022, FBT became part of BankPlus.  One of the most innovative banks in the region, BankPlus mirrors the same customer-focused banking philosophy which you have come to rely on.  Though we are now a division of BankPlus, the conversion of customer accounts will not take place until the close of business on Friday, August 19, 2022.  We will continue to operate as First Bank and Trust until the conversion is complete.  After conversion, you can count on greater service and convenience for both First Bank and Trust and BankPlus custmers.  

BankPlus and First Bank and Trust share the same banking philosophy, developed over decades of serving communities and businesses.  As a result, we know the value of preserving relationships.  So when your local First Bank and Trust location becomes a BankPlus location in August, you can count of the same quality service from the same friendly faces and experienced local decision makers.

The BankPlus slogan, "It's more than a name. It's a promise.," sums up an ongoing commitment to deliver enhanced banking products and the latest technology with the highest level of service.  Once First Bank and Trust fully integrates into BankPlus on August 19, 2022, you'll enjoy even more banking choices, newer technolgy and enhanced services like advanced online and mobile banking tools. 

Ther merger also means there will be over 90 locations to serve you throughout Mississippi, Louisiana, Alabama and Florida after the conversion of your accounts in August.  

First Bank and Trust was built by focusing on relationships.  Now, as a part of BankPlus, we look forward to expanding relationships with our customers and building stronger communities.   For more information about this exciting change, click here.
