 First Bank, an Illinois-chartered stock savings bank, which currently operates offices in Paris, Marshall, Savoy, Rantoul, Champaign, and Martinsville, Illinois, is the principal operating subsidiary of First BancTrust Corporation ("The Company"). The Company is a privately held financial services holding company chartered in Delaware. Our primary business activities are concentrated on providing financial services to households, agriculture, and small businesses in east-central Illinois through First Bank. These activities are supplemented by the activities of our other operating subsidiary,  ECS Service Corporation doing business as Edgar County Title Company which

In September, 2009, ECS Service Corporation expanded to open a second title and abstracting services company, Cornerstone Community Title Company, in Marshall, Illinois. The remaining subsidiary company, First Charter Service Corporation, has been inactive since the latter part of 2004, when a strategic alliance was established with First Advisor Financial Group, which now provides non-insured investment products, insurance products and asset management guidance to the Bank's customers.
