5-Star Highpoint Community Bank
Once Again a Top Performer

March 2017: Highpoint Community Bank, Hastings, Michigan 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.) Highpoint Community Bank has earned this top honor for 30 consecutive quarters.

“Highpoint Community 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 Highpoint Community Bank and for its community.”

Highpoint Community Bank was established in 1886 and has been providing quality banking services to its neighbors and friends ever since. Today, after 131 years, it operates through seven conveniently located offices in Bellevue, Caledonia, Hastings, Marshall, Middleville, Nashville and Wayland and can also be found on the internet at
