5-Star Wheatland Bank On Top for a Reason

Wheatland Bank, Spokane, Washington proudly announces it has once again earned a 5-Star Superior rating from BauerFinancial, the Nation’s Premier Bank Rating Firm. To earn Bauer’s Highest 5-Star rating, Wheatland Bank must excel in areas of capital adequacy, profitability, loan quality, and more. This marks the 38th consecutive quarter that Wheatland Bank has earned this rating.

“Not only does Wheatland Bank have 38 quarters of 5-Star ratings behind it, its strong capital position and prudent loan underwriting give us every reason to believe it will continue to do so”, contends Karen L. Dorway, president of BauerFinancial. “Knowing its customers is one of the keys to intelligent underwriting, and as a community bank, Wheatland Bank has an inside track.”

Financial strength has been the priority for Wheatland Bank since its inception in 1979. Initially founded to serve the needs of Lincoln County’s agricultural and business communities, it has since expanded to 14 conveniently located branch offices. Wheatland Bank has been a source of pride for its local community for 37 years. Its original commitment is kept alive with powerful local ownership and decision making even as the bank has expanded. Wheatland Bank is a value-oriented financial services provider dedicated to serving the needs of its customers, communities and employees while enhancing shareholder value.
