Mission and Values

What we value

Our Vision is simple:

“To improve the lives of those we serve”

But it’s more than just a fancy quote hanging on the wall.

It’s our guiding principle, on which we base all our actions. It gives us the liberty to understand you and the insurance industry, and focus our products and services on your bottom line first, not ours. At NW Preferred, you’re more than just an account number. You’re a business owner, a self-promoter, a community leader, a resilient go getter and you’re invested in yourself and your future.

And you’re just the kind of person we have been helping succeed for more than 75 years. We’re confident you’ll never find another bank that understands the complexities of the insurance industry and believes in your success like we do. As a credit union, we:

  • Embrace small businesses and entrepreneurs
  • Understand agent compensation models
  • Offer business loans and products specifically designed for agents
  • Continue to give long standing support to professional insurance associations

In an effort to help mitigate the spread of the coronavirus (Covid-19) and to protect the health of our members and employees, NW Preferred will be closing access to our Stayton and Portland (Tigard) branch lobbies beginning Tuesday, March 24th. After Monday, we will be available to assist members with specific or unique needs, by appointment only, based on our available resources.

Remember you can easily access your NW Preferred accounts, 24 hours a day, via online or mobile banking. You can also locate nearby ATMs by using our mobile app or texting your location (address, intersection, or zip code) to 91989.

Most importantly, stay well.
