June 20, 2017 — Puget Sound Bank earned a five-star “superior” rating from BauerFinancial, the nation’s leading independent bank and credit union rating firm, for the 27th consecutive quarter.
Star ratings are released quarterly and assigned on a scale of zero-to-five stars, with five being the strongest. Ratings are based on the overall financial picture of the financial institution.
BauerFinancial has been reporting on and analyzing the performance of U.S. banks and credit unions since 1983. The ratings are independent, meaning no institution is able to pay to be rated or excluded.
