Every other bank in the top 10 for deposit market share in Wisconsin saw its overall share decline from 2020 to 2021, even though all but two of them saw total deposits increase from the previous year. Deposits at BMO Harris offices in Wisconsin increased $1.1 billion or 4.6% to $25.6 billion, still the second highest total in the state, but a 0.9 percentage point decrease in share to 12.75%.

The bank’s deposits in the region increased 25.8% to $34.5 billion. Tri City National was the only other bank to see its share in the M7 region increase with deposits up 19.2% to $1.74 billion.
