We are a state-chartered, FDIC-insured, New Orleans-based bank with headquarters at 909 Poydras Street in the First Bank and Trust Tower in the central business district. We have steadily grown our client base and now hold approximately $1.17 billion in assets.

The Delta symbol has a long history that dates back to ancient Greece. Scientists use the symbol to mean “change.” The pyramids were built in this triangular shape. Engineers to this day use the shape to add strength. But it also has an important meaning locally: First Bank and Trust is headquartered in New Orleans, Louisiana, at the Mississippi River Delta. And, like the fertile delta region, our bank has seen great growth. Today we stand on a foundation of strength and look toward a future where change is not an option, but a given. At First Bank and Trust, we are poised for continued growth that will serve our customers and employees well.


We are personally responsible to our customers and fellow teammates to:

  • Make timely decisions that create a quality experience for all those involved.
  • Do what it takes to create a legacy for ourselves and First Bank and Trust, ensuring its continued success.
  • Create a rewarding and positive career environment for fellow team members.
