March 31, 2017
Wheatland Bank, Spokane, Washington proudly announces it is once again a top performer, earning a coveted 5-Star rating from BauerFinancial, the Nation’s Premier Bank Rating Firm. (A five-star rating indicates that this bank excels in areas of capital adequacy, profitability, asset quality and much more.) Wheatland Bank has earned this top honor for 40 consecutive quarters earning it even higher accolades. Wheatland Bank is an “Exceptional Performance Bank” for securing a 5-Star rating for 40 consecutive quarters or longer.
Wheatland Bank is a prime example of a community bank excelling at what a community bank was meant to do,” explains Karen L. Dorway, president of BauerFinancial. “It employs locally, thereby having the same personal investment in the community as its customers; it makes decisions locally, often for neighbors and friends; and it focuses on quality as opposed to quantity. That focus has paid off for both Wheatland Bank and for its community.”
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 38 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.
