Puget Sound Bank Receives Another “Superior” Rating

2015 March 16 by

18th Consecutive Quarter for 5-Star Award

5-star logo MARCH 2015March 16, 2015 – BauerFinancial, an independent research firm that analyzes and reports on banks and credit unions, has rated Puget Sound Bank “superior” (5 stars) for the 18th consecutive quarter. For a bank to bear the five-star (superior) emblem, it must have received an excellent or superior rating for 11 consecutive quarters. Some of the criteria rated (but not limited to) include: capital level, asset quality, profitability, loan delinquencies, reserves and regulatory compliance.

Since 1983 BauerFinancial has been compiling information that federal regulators require financial institutions to file every quarter. The information is subjected to a thorough analysis and is compared with historical data for consistency. Upon completion of the analysis, a star rating is assigned based on a scale of zero to five starts, with five stars the highest.

No institution pays for its rating, nor can banks or credit unions avoid a rating. For more information about BauerFinancial visit their website.

Puget Sound Bank Ranked 5th in State

2015 March 11 by

“Washington’s Banks Looking Pretty Good” says Industry Analyst

March 11, 2015 – In a recent Puget Sound Business Journal article by local digital managing editor Emily Parkhurst, Puget Sound Bank is highlighted as Washington state’s fifth-best as ranked several ratios, including earnings, asset quality, capitalization, growth and other factors.

The list was compiled by St. Louis-based industry analyst Kirk Briden, a banking industry veteran who goes beyond traditional measure criteria to measure performance. As Parkhurst points out in her article, the strength of a bank is important for businesses looking for a loan because banks that are not performing well can have issues with regulators, which can make it more difficult to work with them.

She quotes Briden as saying “When you start running into trouble, regulators often define a very narrow box to confine (the bank) to.” Read her full article to see Briden’s top 25 banks in Washington state.
