About Us

For over 90 years, First Guaranty Bank has proudly served the people of Louisiana and Texas. With today’s ever-changing economy, there is one thing that will not change and that is First Guaranty Bank’s commitment to our customers. With the power to make loan decisions on a local level we have the strength to help meet the needs and expectations of our customers. While other banks may come and go, First Guaranty Bank continues to have the power of three generations of banking trust.

First Guaranty Bank is committed to a culture of inclusion, equity, and opportunity for everyone.  We believe there’s always room for self-improvement through education, tolerance and understanding.  We commit to treating everyone with respect and working together to take action to reject discrimination in all forms.

Our Mission

The mission of First Guaranty Bank and First Guaranty Bancshares is to increase the shareholder value while providing financial services for and contributing to the growth and welfare of the communities we serve.

Our Values and Goals


We believe that each customer is our most important customer and should be treated as such. We endeavor to provide levels of service that exceed the expectations of all our customers.



We believe that our employees are our greatest asset as demonstrated in their professionalism and dedication. We encourage open communications and strive to cultivate an entrepreneurial environment in which our employees feel highly responsible for the performance of the bank, and an environment where they will contribute new ideas and innovations that will help us excel.



We seek to enhance stockholder value by continually improving the quality of earnings, growth in earnings, return on equity and dividend payout.



We strive to be a socially responsible corporate citizen by supporting community activities and encouraging our employees to be actively involved in our communities. We are committed to the success of the communities that we serve, the same communities our employees call home. Our goal is to participate in making our communities better places in which to live, work and play. We invite you to take a look at all the events we've been a part of and encourage you to join us in giving back in any way that you can!

What Does Fanatical Mean to Us?

We’re not interested in the status quo. We’re interested in passion, drive and total commitment to our customers and our community. That’s what it means to be fanatical. Fanatical is putting our customers first and foremost, it’s cheering on the home team, it’s knowing your neighbors and knowing exactly how to be there for them. Fanatical is the spirit of “Let’s do this!” It’s authentic and accessible and it’s a deep and abiding trust built over 89 years of communication, service and a shared common goal of growing together.
