History & Philosophy

FBBS, formerly known as First St. Louis Securities, Inc. was founded in 1984 to service community banks and their investment portfolio needs in a simple and straightforward manner. The firm remained independently owned for twenty-two years. In the fall of 2006, bankers’ banks representing several Midwestern states acquired First St. Louis Securities, Inc. and rebranded as First Bankers’ Banc Securities, Inc. (FBBS). Founded in St. Louis, Missouri, we now have offices located in several states.

For over 35 years, FBBS has worked with over 1,000 clients in more than 30 states. Initially founded with the purpose to service community bank investment needs, the scope of our client coverage has evolved over time. Today we service investment needs for not only community banks and trust companies but also investment advisors, insurance companies, municipalities, corporations and individuals. No matter the type of client, we are committed to upholding our philosophy of exceptional service through individualized attention. Our experienced traders, sales representatives, strategists, and support staff are dedicated to providing the appropriate products, services, and trade execution tailored to our clients’ needs. The FBBS team believes the success of our clientele is the future of our firm.
