HCB Earns Highest 5-Star Superior Safety Rating!

5-Star Highpoint Community Bank:
Making a Difference in Your Neighborhood

June 2019, Coral Gables, Florida: Highpoint Community Bank, Hastings, Michigan has achieved another Superior 5-Star Rating from BauerFinancial, the Nation’s Premier Bank Rating Firm. In the 30-plus years that Bauer has been analyzing banks, there has been a rise of increasingly complicated investments as well as burgeoning regulation. Each has added another hurdle when it comes to earning a 5-Star Rating from Bauer, yet none have been a problem for Highpoint Community Bank. Not only has the bank maintained safe capital levels, well in excess of what regulators require, Highpoint Community Bank has been helping its neighbors and local businesses grow their community with prudent lending and innovative solutions – all without compromising its own financial health in the process.

“This is the beauty of community banking,” notes Karen Dorway, president of BauerFinancial. “The success of a community bank directly correlates to the success of the community it serves. Community banks don’t need exotic investment instruments to make money for their shareholders. They much prefer to invest in local businesses and reap the benefits along with their neighbors. This approach has served Highpoint Community Bank very well as Highpoint Community Bank has earned and maintained Bauer’s top 5-Star rating for 39 consecutive quarters.

Now, after 133 years, 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.
