Bravera Bank

Why Bravera?

We are Bravera.

An employee- and director-owned company of advisors who help build the financial strength, stability and growth of every community to which we belong. We’re driven to serve you, coming together to forge new paths to help you achieve your business and personal goals.
From small towns to larger cities, from the wide-open plains to the rugged beauty of the mountains, from family farms to energy fields, to the people building businesses and lives in our communities, Bravera is powered by the energy of all those we serve with a footprint that reaches far and wide, with a focus always
on our people. 
The word Bravera combines “Bravery” and “Truth” (vera meaning 'true' in Latin) for a name with strong ties to the pioneer spirit and honest values that define the northern plains.
