BauerFinancial, Coral Gables, Florida, the Nation’s Premier Bank Rating Firm, is proud to announce that Richwood Bank, Richwood, Ohio has once again secured a 5-Star rating. What a great way to start 2018! A five-star rating indicates the bank excels in areas of capital adequacy, profitability, asset quality and much more.

Dorway, president of BauerFinancial. “Community banks, like Richwood Bank, promote local growth by investing back into the same neighborhoods that their deposits come from. By fostering these local relationships, they achieve two goals: they are highly capitalized and they are accountable to their customers.”
