Banking in the Denver Area

Denver is a major city not only in the West but also in the U.S. as a whole. It is the largest city in Colorado and 21st largest city in the U.S., with a population of about 665,000. However, the greater Denver region is much larger, with anywhere from about 2.7 million to 3.2 million people, depending on how you calculate it. Denver has the 16th most-populous metropolitan area in the U.S., and it is the largest area in the mountain west.

Because of its size and relative isolation to other large cities, Denver is a major banking center. There are 96 banks and 75 credit unions with their headquarters somewhere in the Denver area. Notable institutions with their headquarters in the Denver region include 1st Bank, Community Banks of Colorado, Bellco CU, and CoBiz Bank. The oldest institution in the area that is still operating is First Northern Bank of Wyoming, which was established in 1885. Overall, counting banks operating in the Denver area that are headquartered elsewhere, the region has more than 170 banks and 95 credit unions that together have a total of about 2,140 branches.
