SHARE Wintrust scouting for banks in Northwest Indiana

Wintrust Financial Corp. is scouting for banks to acquire in Northwest Indiana as more of its business customers expand or move to nearby states. If the Rosemont-based banking company can’t find banks to buy, it will consider opening branches there, CEO Edward J. Wehmer tells chicagobusiness.com. Wintrust already has a presence north of the border in Wisconsin and expects to complete a deal with Talmer Bancorp Inc. for 11 branch offices in the third quarter.
