Bank of the West

Bars, churches and banks have been cornerstone institutions in many Wyoming small towns for more than a century. But what happens when a bank’s values don’t seem to match Wyoming’s – or when the bank no longer appears trustworthy?

“For the economy as a whole – for the state, localities and nationally – banks provide a stabilizer to economic activity,” said Anne Alexander, associate vice provost of academic affairs for undergraduate education at the University of Wyoming. “They provide sources of finances that smooth out the need for liquid assets and provide a safe haven for savings.”
