Starion Bank earned a five-star “superior” rating for second quarter 2016 from BauerFinancial, the nation’s leading independent bank and credit union rating firm.
BauerFinancial has been reporting on and analyzing the performance of U.S. banks and credit unions since 1983. Star ratings are assigned quarterly on a scale of zero-to-five stars, with five being the strongest, and are based on the overall financial picture of the financial institution. The ratings are independent, meaning no institution is able to pay to be rated or excluded.
“Starion Bank earned this rating thanks to the hard work of our entire team and our commitment to doing what is right for the customer,” said Craig Larson, CEO/president of Starion Bank. “The Bauer ratings are a tool that can give consumers piece of mind that their financial institution is responsible and strong.”
