Centier Bank remains at the top in Northwest Indiana in terms of market share, after first supplanting Chase Bank in 2017.
The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. Summary of Deposits shows that Merrillville-based Centier, which started out as The Bank of Whiting in 1895 and has since grown into the largest privately owned bank in Indiana, has 20.73% of the market share in Lake, Porter and LaPorte counties. Centier has 41 branches in Northwest Indiana and $2.94 billion in deposits.
Second-place Chase has 19.53% of the overall market share in Northwest Indiana with $2.74 billion in deposits in Lake, LaPorte and Porter counties. Chase immediately became the top bank in Northwest Indiana when it bought Bank One in 2005, giving it 34 branches in the market.
