5-Star Highpoint Community Bank:
Where You’re a Person, Not a Number

March 2019: Coral Gables, Florida, BauerFinancial, Inc., the Nation’s Premier Bank Rating Firm, salutes 5-Star Highpoint Community Bank (formerly Hastings City Bank), Hastings, Michigan for its continued financial excellence. Not only has Highpoint Community Bank earned Bauer’s highest (5-Star) rating for financial strength and stability, it has maintained that top rating for 38 consecutive quarters. Earning a 5-Star rating indicates this bank excels in areas of capital adequacy, profitability, asset quality and much more.

“What I find particularly encouraging”, observes Karen Dorway, president of BauerFinancial, “is that it’s community banks, like Highpoint Community Bank, that are achieving this status. Community banks base decisions on relationships, not just on numbers. We seem to be coming to a point where human interaction is regaining importance. Technology is an invaluable tool, but only when it enhances the customer experience. Highpoint Community Bank has never lost sight of that.”

Highpoint Community Bank was established in 1886, and has been building personal relationships ever since. Today, 133 years later, Highpoint Community Bank operates through seven conveniently located offices in Bellevue, Caledonia, Hastings, Marshall, Middleville, Nashville and Wayland and can also be found online at highpointcommunitybank.com.
