Wheatland Bank:  Rated 5-Stars Consistently for more than 10 Years

BauerFinancial, Coral Gables, Florida, the Nation’s Premier Bank Rating Firm, is proud to announce that Wheatland Bank, Spokane, Washington has once again secured its highest, 5-Star rating. (A five-star rating indicates the bank excels in areas of capital adequacy, profitability, asset quality and much more.) Earning and maintaining this top 5-Star rating for 44 consecutive quarters, Wheatland Bank has also procured an “Exceptional Performance Bank” status. This assignment is reserved for banks that have maintained Bauer’s highest rating consistently for 10 years or longer.

“A lot of things have changed since the Great Recession,” reflects Karen L. Dorway, president of BauerFinancial. “Technology, in particular, has changed the way many people bank, but it will never replace a bank’s knowledge of its customers. Community banks, like Wheatland Bank, have the upper hand on that. Through personal interaction, they can meet their customers’ needs today while anticipating them for tomorrow.”

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 39 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 (wheatland.bank).
