Overview
Fidelity Bank is committed to providing our distinctive red apron service to all of our customers. As the second largest locally owned financial institution in Wichita, Kansas and a growing presence in the Oklahoma City area, we provide customers with a wide array of quality financial services.

The forerunner of Fidelity Bank--The Fidelity Investment Company--opened its doors for business in Wichita in 1905 as a mortgage lender. In 1942 Homer C. Bastian, Kansas' first director of the Federal Housing Administration, recognized Wichita's growth potential as a trade area. He left the FHA and purchased one-half interest in Fidelity Investment.
Air Capital Acquisition
In the late 1960's, Marvin Bastian became the chief executive officer of the Fidelity companies. He acquired Air Capital Savings, a $32 million asset savings and loan association, in 1975. Over the next 20 years, the company experienced exceptional growth as a thrift institution known as Fidelity Savings Association of Kansas.

Facilities and Leadership Expand
By the 1980's, Fidelity had outgrown its downtown headquarters at 229 South Market Street in Wichita. Recognizing the importance of a vital downtown area, the Bastian's remained committed to the heart of the city. Next door, at English and Market streets, Fidelity constructed a $6 million, five-story office building--a state-of-the-art facility that opened in 1986.The company's leadership expanded with the addition of Marvin Bastian's sons-Clark in 1976 and Clay in 1980. Clark is CEO and Chairman of the Board of Fidelity Bank. Clay is president of the holding company, Fidelity Financial Corporation. Marvin Bastian continues as an advisory director for Fidelity Bank, and he is Board Chairman of Fidelity Financial Corporation.
