Banking in the Omaha Area

Omaha, the largest city in the state of Nebraska, is home to businessman Warren Buffett (“The Oracle of Omaha”). With over 400,000 people, Omaha has a rich history of blues, jazz, and gospel music. Lewis and Clark passed by the future site of the city on their expedition in 1804, and the city was informally established in 1854. Today, its economy centers around banking, insurance, and transportation as well as architecture, construction, and telecommunications.

The Omaha metropolitan area boasts a sizeable banking industry with more than 140 banks and 40 credit unions, including some historic institutions. FNBO Direct, for instance, was established in 1857 and remains active even today. These banks and credit unions maintain nearly 700 branches throughout the metropolitan area. Many financial institutions are also headquartered in Omaha, including 37 credit unions and 98 banks. Some of the most influential financial institutions headquartered in the city include the SAC Federal Credit Union, FNBO Direct, Mutual of Omaha Bank, American National Bank (NE), and Security National Bank of Omaha. One of the top employers in the area is the First National Bank of Omaha, a privately held bank holding company founded in the 1960s.
