What is Oregon Banks Local about?
Banks and credit unions often work really hard to “look local” even when some of them are anything but. We researched the banks doing business in Oregon and weighed several objectively measurable factors to rate how local a bank or credit union truly is.
Investing in Oregon, not Wall Street
Currently, 69% of private deposits here in Oregon are held by just five Wall Street banks. If we want to gain control of our economy away from Wall Street we will have to do better than that! As we become less reliant on big banks, our local community banks and credit unions will thrive. Oregon Banks Local is about building a truly local and sustainable economy that keeps our money here in Oregon to rebuild our main streets and rural communities.
