Our Story

The History Of Bank of Anguilla

Bank of Anguilla’s history dates back to its charter in 1904 when local businessmen and farmers came together out of a desire to create a financial institution focused on the economic well-being of the South Delta of Mississippi. Bank of Anguilla has endured the challenging times of the Flood of 1927 and the Great Depression, and has prevailed as a strong, well-capitalized hometown, independent bank.

The mission of Bank of Anguilla remains to achieve economic success and financial security by building relationships through trust, confidence, and integrity as we provide excellent service to the people of this area. Most of our shareholders have ties to the Bank’s service area, thereby closely aligning the Bank’s goals with those of the area we serve. As technology enables the expansion of service areas without the need for brick and mortar offices, Bank of Anguilla is pleased to offer financial services beyond its two-county trade area with its same commitment to quality customer relationships.

Who We Are

Bank of Anguilla operates branches in Sharkey and Issaquena counties while, at the same time, also serving the needs of people in neighboring Warren, Washington, and Yazoo counties. In that two county area, there are no nationally branded retail outlets, dining establishments, hotels, or entertainment venues. The majority of our loan portfolio focuses on consumer, agricultural, mortgage, and small business loans. We know our customers, and we understand their needs. Bank of Anguilla is known for its expertise in the agricultural industry. Additionally, we underwrite many residential loans with experience tailored towards mortgage loans and helping individuals and families finance basic needs through traditional yet personalized consumer loans. Because of our relationship with our community, we have an in-depth understanding of how to help a small business profitably exist in such a small, lightly-populated rural environment.

The number of small, independent banks in Mississippi is shrinking each year. The community banking and personal touch in small towns and counties is vanishing. However, Bank of Anguilla is committed and invested in remaining an independent bank for the people of the Deep Delta. As a customer, you can always depend on knowledge, understanding, and compassion from us at Bank of Anguilla.
