Regent Bank is a locally owned community bank with deep Oklahoma roots spanning generations. We were founded more than 116 years ago in the town of Nowata. Today, with additional offices in Tulsa and Oklahoma City, we believe we’re well on our way to achieving our goal of becoming the state’s premier business bank, helping small and mid-market businesses to prosper and grow. We take pride in offering clients a new gold standard for expertise and high-touch service. We listen closely to their hopes and fears, and take the time to understand their unique challenges and needs in detail.

We provide funding for growth, acquisitions, equipment loans, operating lines of credit, commercial real estate, SBA, USDA, and more. We also offer cash management, mobile deposits, and a host of other business services. We endeavor to deploy the latest banking technology to supply the most timely and highest-quality information. Guided by a set of core values that set us apart in the world of banking, the entire Regent team does whatever it takes to add value to our clients’ everyday business.

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.  We are emotionally invested in the success of those we serve.

Our mission statement is “Regent Bank passionately serves our clients to help them achieve their dreams.” We do this through our monthly Executive Luncheon Series, the Faith in Business Series, the Regent Insider and countless hours advising our clients on a myriad of issues that have little to do with traditional banking. Our clients and shareholders are also our friends and neighbors, and we will do whatever we can to help you reach achieve your dreams.

Our employees recently developed a vision that they want every Regent Bank client to say: “My bankers treat me like family and I am excited to come back!” Our goal in every client interaction is to treat you like family.
