5-Star Rating from Bauer Financial
Stockman Bank of Montana Proves it Has What it Takes
January 2023: BauerFinancial, Inc., the Nation’s Premier Bank Rating Firm, has once again awarded Stockman Bank of Montana, its top (5-Star) rating. “It’s important to impress, this award is not granted; it is earned,” emphasizes Karen Dorway, president of BauerFinancial. “And, having earned 5-Stars for 40 (or more) consecutive quarters, Stockman has earned an even higher designation as an Exceptional Performance Bank.”
Bauer rates every federally insured U.S. chartered bank with the same strict standards, and reports that Stockman Bank continues to excel in areas of capital adequacy, profitability, loan quality and more. This marks the 57th consecutive quarter it has done so - since January 2009!
“With the Federal Reserve raising interest rates at breakneck speed, it may be tough for some banks to keep pace,” cautions Dorway. “But, with high capital cushions and an established track record, Stockman is well-positioned to continue to thrive and be a source of strength for the communities it serves.”
