HCB Earns Highest 5-Star Superior Safety Rating!

December 2015: It is with great pleasure that BAUERFINANCIAL Inc., Coral Gables, Florida announces that Highpoint Community Bank, Hastings, Michigan has earned its coveted 5-Star Superior rating for the 25th consecutive quarter. “A 5-Star rating indicates that Highpoint Community Bank is one of the strongest banks in the nation, excelling in such areas as capital, loan quality, profitability and much more. Earning Bauer’s 5-Star designation proves that Highpoint Community Bank is getting it right,” expressed Karen L. Dorway, president of BauerFinancial, the nation’s bank rating firm.

”BauerFinancial has been touting the benefits and mainstays of community banks since its inception in 1983,” Dorway continues. “I am thrilled to be able to say that the January 2016 issue of Consumer Reports agrees. According to its own surveys, Consumer Reports concluded that smaller banks are best for personal service as they ‘tend to focus more on relationships’; over three-quarters of respondents indicated they were’ highly satisfied’ in the CR survey.”

Today it operates through seven branch offices in Bellevue, Caledonia, Hastings, Marshall, Middleville, Nashville and Wayland and can also be found on the internet at hastingscitybank.com.
