Our Heritage

California Bank & Trust (CB&T) is among the leading banks in California with over $10 billion in assets and nearly 100 branch offices located throughout the state.

Starting as a group of individually-owned banks throughout the state, California Bank & Trust has helped Californians and their businesses grow and prosper for over 60 years. And we've grown with California; by combining the responsiveness of a local bank with the comprehensive services offered by major financial institutions.

Formed in October 1998, California Bank & Trust is the result of merging three institutions acquired separately by Zions Bancorporation: Sumitomo Bank of California, San Diego-based Grossmont bank and First Pacific National Bank. Fresno-based Regency Bank was acquired in 1999, as were Eldorado Bancshares' two banking subsidiaries, Eldorado Bank and Antelope Valley Bank, in 2001.

CB&T's regional structure allows decision-making to remain as close as possible to the customer, facilitating reasoned and rapid response with an understanding of the local marketplace.

California Bank & Trust (CB&T) is a division of ZB, N.A., which operates in nearly 500 local financial centers across 11 Western states: Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. ZB, N.A.'s parent company is Zions Bancorporation, which is included in the S&P 500 and NASDAQ Financial 100 indices (NASDAQ: ZION).
