Who We Are

Nodaway Valley Bank has been meeting the financial needs of northwest Missouri’s citizens since 1868.

NODAWAY VALLEY BANK / HIGHLIGHTS

Nodaway Valley Bank is the oldest and largest independently owned and managed bank in northwest Missouri.

NVB operates on a decentralized community banking model that facilitates prompt, local lending decisions.

Nodaway Valley Bank holds one of the oldest state banking charters in Missouri.

Founded in Maryville, the bank’s territory has expanded over the past 35 years to incorporate St. Joseph, Savannah, Mound City and more recently in the Kansas City Northland with full-service banks in Platte City and Smithville, as well as a Lending Office in Liberty.

NVB celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2018.  We believe we reached this milestone by living up to our founder’s motto of “Safety & Dependability.”

NVB’s focus remains serving the people and commerce of northwest Missouri through strong, lasting customer relationships built on fairness and respect.

Forbes recently named Nodaway Valley Bank the #1 bank in Missouri on a list of Best in State Banks for 2023, based on a survey of customer satisfaction.

NVB is also ranked one of the top 100 best performing community banks with assets below $3 billion for 2022 by S&P Global Market Intelligence and has a 5 Star Rating from Bauer Financial.
