First State Bank Named One of Healthiest Banks in America
First State Bank was one of only three St. Louis-area banks to rank among the 200 healthiest in the U.S., reported the St. Louis Business Journal. The findings were released in October by DepositAccounts, an organization which tracks over 5,000 banks and credit unions.
First State Bank landed on the pages of the 2014 edition of Top 200 Healthiest Banks in America, receiving an A+ ranking based on its deposit growth, capitalization, and Texas ratio, a measure of how much capital a bank has available compared with the total value of loans considered at risk. Any bank with a ratio of 100 percent or greater is considered at risk; First State Bank has a Texas Ratio of 5.40%, which is considered excellent.
First State Bank is headquartered in St. Charles and is the 84th largest bank in the state of Missouri. It was established in 1867 and has grown to over 150 employees at 10 locations.
