The intersection of business, industry and potential
U.S. Bank plays a significant role in financing commercial endeavors and expansion, fulfilling two of our most critical roles — supporting commerce and helping get the economy operating at full strength again. Average commercial loans grew 15.5 percent year-over-year in fourth quarter 2014.
U.S. Bank’s role in the economy is crucial as the nation recovers from the economic downturn, and a robust recovery relies on investment in business and industrial expansion. Even during the recession, U.S. Bank was willing and able to extend credit to middle market, large corporate, commercial real estate and financial institution clients.
With our financial strength — U.S. Bank enjoys the best debt ratings in the industry — we are able to develop custom-tailored financing plans that offer the best solutions for companies, large and small, and new tools to help make them effective and efficient. U.S. Bank Treasury Management clients now can perform key functions on the go with our new app, Mobile SinglePoint® for iPhone and iPad. In March 2014, U.S. Bank was named a “Best Brand” for Middle Market Banking by Greenwich Associates.
U.S. Bank has greatly expanded its national corporate banking and capital markets activity during the past several years, opening new offices, offering new products such as high-grade bonds, private placements and municipal securities — enabling customers slowed by the economy to move forward again.
