Who We Are

Sunrise Banks is the Most Innovative Bank Empowering Financial Wellness

Values-Based Banking

At Sunrise Banks, our success relies on the success of the communities we serve. As a socially responsible bank, we offer financially inclusive products that aim to better the lives of our clients in the Minnesota Twin Cities Metro and beyond. We don’t see ourselves as bankers – we see ourselves as a social engine for good. Sunrise Banks, founded by current CEO David Reiling and his father William, started serving the urban core of Minneapolis and St. Paul in 1986 and continues to grow. Now, we offer products nationally through our fintech partnerships. As our reach expands, so does our ability to provide innovative banking products to underserved communities.

David Reiling is a social entrepreneur and innovator on the cutting edge of fintech and financial wellness. He strives to forge meaningful partnerships that drive sustainable economic growth. The bank, driven by David’s vision, focuses on positive community engagement with ethical banking and partners with like-minded companies to extend its mission nationally and around the world.

Sunrise Banks is a certified B Corporation, a certified Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI), generating funds for underserved communities, and member of the Global Alliance for Banking on Values. We provide innovative services throughout our core banking focuses.

A Better Future with Eco-Friendly Banking

We’re proud to be a member of the Global Alliance for Banking on Values, an organization focused on three values: social empowerment, environmental regeneration, and economic resilience. Sunrise Banks uses the Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials (PCAF) framework to measure the carbon emissions of our loan portfolios and operations. Those who are interested in the results can read our PCAF reports here.

Sunrise Banks understands that money, used differently, can be a force for good. The climate affects every part of our community, including our pocketbooks. That’s why we’re proud to provide eco-friendly banking in Minnesota, South Dakota, and beyond.
