Bauerfinancial, Inc., the Nation’s Premier Bank Rating Firm, congratulates American Bank & Trust, Wessington Springs, South Dakota on its 61 consecutive 5-Star Rating. To earn this top rating, the bank must excel under a rigorous, independent analysis of its financial condition. And American Bank & Trust has done so continuously since March 2007.

Only Banks, like American Bank & Trust, that have earned this top rating for at least 40 consecutive quarters (10 years) can call themselves an “Exceptional Performance Bank”.

How do they continue to perform so well during these difficult times? We asked Karen Dorway, president of BauerFinancial, for her insight.

“American Bank & Trust, and other community banks like it, are uniquely positioned to help local people and businesses when times are unpredictable,” she reflected. “As an integral part of the community, community bankers have the intimate knowledge of exactly how given circumstances may affect neighbors and friends. That knowledge, combined with the ability to think, act and react locally, means that decisions can be made faster and implemented in the best manner possible for the community.”

American Bank & Trust’s personal interest in the people and communities it serves has been on full display since its inception in 1892. American Bank & Trust is a source of strength and stability for the community, and has been for 130 years. No matter what circumstances they are facing, American Bank & Trust’s friendly and caring staff is always ready to lend a hand, whether at the branch, by phone or on their website:
