Is U.S. Bank part of U.S. Bancorp?

Yes, U.S. Bancorp [NYSE: USB] is the publicly traded parent company of U.S. Bank. While we often use U.S.Bancorp in formal documents and corporate filings, U.S. Bank is what you’ll see on branch doorways, app stores, national television commercials and much more.  

We also have a number of subsidiaries, some of which have variations on the U.S. Bancorp or U.S. Bank name like U.S. Bancorp Community Development Corporation and U.S. Bancorp Investments. Others are uniquely named, such as our global payment processing leader Elavon.  

And to respond to a question we sometimes hear, U.S. Bank is not part of the U.S. government.
