Our founders built our bank on core values we share with the people and communities we serve. Those ideals—Honor and Integrity, Strength and Stability, Commitment to Service, Teamwork and Personal Responsibility—define who we are and how we do business.
BauerFinancial Inc., the nation’s leading independent bank rating and analysis firm based in Coral Gables, Florida, just published its quarterly ratings for more than 6,800 U.S. financial institutions. Our 4-star rating for the quarter ending June 30, 2016 reaffirms our Strength and Stability, now for 108 consecutive quarters (27 years in a row).
BauerFinancial recommends us as one of the most financially sound banks in America and in the top 20 percent of all financial institutions in the country. No bank can opt out of or pay for a BauerFinancial rating. It’s not a bought-and-paid-for award. Instead, it’s a meaningful, objective look at the financial strength and safety clients look for and need in a bank.
Every day, our associates turn to our founding principles to earn the trust and confidence of clients. BauerFinancial’s ongoing endorsement helps us reassure the people who depend on us that we don’t just talk about the right thing to do. We believe in and embrace the core values that have kept us strong, stable and safe for more than a century.
