The Cooperative Difference


Family riding on the MaxWe’re a financial cooperative: not-for-profit & proudly owned by our members.


Advantis has served the Portland metro area for over 85 years. As a member-owned, not-for-profit financial cooperative, extra earnings are returned to YOU, our members - not to corporate stockholders (like big banks do). This means you enjoy better rates, lower fees, and more free services - just for being a member!
