Wood & Huston Bank again tops a list of Healthiest Banks in America

Friday, September 9, 2016

MARSHALL -- On Thursday, Sept. 8, Wood & Huston Bank announced it has once again been ranked as one of the top 100 healthiest banks in the United States. This ranking was done by an independent rating firm -- Deposits Online LLC (DOL).

According to a recent press release, DOL, an independent financial information services firm that annually analyzes all 14,000 federally insured banks and credit unions across America rated Wood & Huston in its Top 100 Healthiest list for 2016. The healthiest bank rankings analyze and grade banks on a number of health factors including: capitalization, deposit growth, and loan to reserve ratios, in order to determine an overall health score. Wood & Huston Bank was the only community bank in the state of Missouri that ranked in the Top 100 with an A+ health rating.

Commenting on this recognition for Wood & Huston Bank is the bank's President and CEO Mark Thompson: "We are proud to be recognized once again by an independent organization as one of the Top 100 Healthiest Banks in America. However, our greatest pride comes from providing quality personal and business banking services to the people living and working in the Missouri communities that we serve."

Established in 1874, Wood & Huston is an independent, full-service community bank that in 2014 celebrated 140 years of providing a wide range of quality financial products and solutions to the communities that they serve in Missouri -- with branches and/or service locations in Cape Girardeau, Higginsville, Jackson, Marshall, Slater, Springfield and West Plains.

  • Do you really know what happened on those George deposits? Do you have some insight we don't? Because I don't remember hearing the bank having any issues throughout that whole investigation. And besides, how would they have benefited, and how does that all of a sudden make them not a healthy bank?
