There is nothing more satisfying than being able to help a small business owner achieve their goals and live out their dreams. At Regent Bank, we are entrepreneurs helping entrepreneurs, and we love what we do!

We’ve helped finance the American dream for 121 years as an SBA preferred lender. We are proud to differentiate from the rest, being owned and operated by small business owners. We have close personal relationships with our clients and we add value beyond traditional banking services.

SBA loans are a part of a powerful economic development program that offers small businesses another avenue for business financing, while promoting business growth and job creation.

In May of 2018, Regent Bank took advantage of an opportunity to hire six of the best in banking in Springfield, Missouri, and opened a branch in this dynamic community. In a few short months, the bank grew to almost $70 million in assets.

Regent Bank’s slogan is “Passion to Serve” because we are passionate about our clients, communities and shareholders. Banking is not just a job for us, it’s personal because we have been in our clients’ shoes as entrepreneurs. We are emotionally invested in the success of those we serve and the community we all serve together.
