Farmers & Merchants Bank was founded by C.J. Walker in 1907 on the values of honesty, integrity, the home, faith and service above self. At a time when market instability caused great unease among investors, C.J. Walker solidified the family name by reassuring frightened depositors that their money was safe. His integrity during this critical time has been the bedrock under the Walker family's commitment to safeguard F&M's clients' money. Generations later, the same values set us apart. Fourth-generation Chairman of the Board and CEO, Daniel K. Walker, and his brother, President W. Henry Walker, along with their father, Kenneth, President of the Main Office, manage the bank through the lens of their founding father. Today, we're one of California's strongest banks — and just as it was more than a century ago, F&M Bank still exhibits a strong foundation built on character and concern for its employees, clients and community.
With over $6 billion in assets, Farmers & Merchants Bank has 24 offices serving Southern California. F&M offers a wide variety of individual and business banking and lending products.
