Our History

Sage Capital Bank was chartered as American National Bank in 1984 by a group of Gonzales businessmen with the mission to create a financial institution that would better serve the banking needs of the community. After establishing roots in Gonzales, the bank opened its first branch office in Lockhart in 1995. Today the bank has branch locations in Gonzales, Lockhart, Luling, New Braunfels, San Marcos, Shiner, Spring Branch, and Austin.

In 2008, as we began to explore additional opportunities for growth, we discovered that there were over 150 banks throughout Texas with some variation of an “American Bank” name. With that in mind, we decided to change our name. We wanted a name that would eliminate customer confusion with similarly named banks and build a strong, unique brand.

To better reflect our Texas values, our Texas roots and our mission as a community bank, we chose a name we could stand behind with pride. Sage Capital Bank brings to mind the qualities of native Texas sage – a shrub that is strong, resilient and native to the land. But sage also refers to knowledge, wisdom, and experience – someone revered for wisdom and good judgment. To better communicate these traits, our new name was paired with the tagline, “Financial Wisdom. Texas Roots.”

American National Bank was a name that served us well for 25 years. However, our new name reflects the same values but also separates us from the crowd. We want our customers and the communities we serve to know that there’s only one Sage Capital Bank.
