First Bank of the Lake - Your 5 Star Community Bank

First Bank of the Lake is excited to announce that we have officially received a 5-star superior rating from BauerFinancial out of Coral Gables, Florida - the Nation's Premier Bank Rating Firm. What does this mean? When a 5-star rating is given, it indicates that the bank excels in capital adequacy, profitability, asset quality and much more. This is such a great way to start off the year and we couldn't be happier. We are a local bank in Osage Beach and we are proud to be a community bank and to have this rating. Here are a few reasons why we are so proud to be a local bank.

First Bank of the Lake – Your 5 Star Community Bank

Reason # 1
Local Banking Makes a Difference
When you work with a local bank, you put your money to work growing the local economy. We share a common commitment to our community with our customers.

Reason # 2
We Have an Understanding of Local Needs
When you work with a local bank, loan approvals and other key decisions are made locally by people who live in the community, have face-to-face relationships with our customers, and who understand local needs.

“Because community banks put their focus on local people and small businesses, they are perfectly positioned to provide the specialized support that is unique to their area,” acknowledges Karen L. Dorway, president of BauerFinancial. “Community banks, like First Bank of the Lake, 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.”

Reason # 3
We Have a Local Staff that is Proud to be Part of this Community
