HCB Earns Highest 5-Star Superior Safety Rating!

5-Star Rated Highpoint Community Bank

A Bank You Can Trust

 

December 2019: Coral Gables, Florida, BauerFinancial, Inc., the Nation’s Premier Bank Rating Firm, proudly affirms that Highpoint Community Bank, Hastings, Michigan has once again earned its highest (5-Star) rating for financial strength and stability. Earning a 5-Star rating indicates this bank excels in areas of capital adequacy, profitability, asset quality and much more. Earning and maintaining this top rating for 41 consecutive quarters, means Highpoint Community Bank has done so continuously since December 2009. This achievement has secured an even higher designation for Highpoint Community Bank as an “Exceptional Performance Bank”. This title is reserved for banks that have earned Bauer’s top 5-Star rating for 40 consecutive quarters (ten years) or longer.

 

“Relationship banking is a lot like any other relationship,” notes Karen Dorway, president of BauerFinancial. “It’s much easier to maintain confidence and trust than to try to win it back. While a lot of Wall Street banks lost it, Highpoint Community Bank never did. In fact,” she continued, “a recent Federal Reserve survey found that while fewer than half of Big Bank customers were satisfied with their overall banking experience, the vast majority of community bank customers are satisfied. And, local businesses dealing with community banks not only reported the most satisfaction, but also the most success. Those findings didn’t surprise us. Community banks, Highpoint Community Bank included, are local small businesses themselves, so they have a definite leg up on outsiders.”

 

Highpoint Community Bank has been helping its neighbors and friends since it began in 1886. Today, after 133 years, it continues to provide a superior personal experience through seven conveniently located offices in Bellevue, Caledonia, Hastings, Marshall, Middleville, Nashville and Wayland and online at highpointcommunitybank.com.

 

Highpoint Community Bank: “Your Hometown Bank Since 1886.”

Member of the FDIC and an Equal Housing Lender.
