Alerus Overview

Re-established in 1933, with roots tracing back to 1879, Alerus is an independent, multibillion-dollar financial services company serving clients across the country and around the world. We offer a broad array of banking, mortgage, retirement, and wealth management products and services to individuals, families, and businesses.

We believe in – and practice – client advocacy, a specialized form
of sales and service which focuses on the best way to help clients
achieve their financial goals. We do this by providing clients
with a primary point of contact, a trusted financial advisor,
who takes the time to truly understand the unique needs and
preferences of each client, then draws on the expertise within
the organization to craft the optimal solution for the client.

At Alerus, our purpose is to help you achieve yours. We do this by bringing you people, products, and services dedicated to your best interest.
We will grow and prosper by becoming the preferred financial solutions provider in chosen markets through a client centric approach.
We will always act in the best interest of our clients by providing innovative and comprehensive financial solutions that are delivered through a relationship-oriented single point of contact along with responsive and adaptable client-friendly technology.
