Fishback Financial Corporation
Like many successful businesses, First Bank & Trust began with a small-town vision. In 1880, Brookings, South Dakota entrepreneur Horace Fishback saw a need to serve a growing community with banking services. Horace and his uncle, Bert Olds, began a check-cashing station at the back counter of their general store. What began as a small venture has grown into one of South Dakota’s largest privately-held companies—Fishback Financial Corporation (FFC)—the holding company for First Bank & Trust.
