Ames National Corporation Banks Ranked as Optimal Performers by Seifried & Brew


Seifried & Brew ranks every community bank across the nation with its proprietary S&B Total Risk Index. This index models capital risk, credit risk, earnings at risk, liquidity risk, and national/regional economic risk. The S&B Risk/Return Composite Index balances each community bank’s risk ranking with their return on assets and return on equity. The S&B Top 15th Percentile Banks are inclusive of community banks with assets between $10 million to $30 billion, that have excelled in 2016.

All five Ames National Corporation Banks, Boone Bank & Trust Co., First National Bank, Ames, Reliance State Bank, State Bank & Trust Co. and United Bank & Trust, n.a., ranked as high-performing banks in this prestigious 2016 S&B Top 15th Percentile. “Being part of the Top 15th Percentile is a great accomplishment…and is no small feat!” says Jamie Sumner, chief analyst of Seifried and Brew, LLC. “In fact, this designation shows that these banks have been able to optimally balance risk and reward through 2016.”

J.C. Brew, president & CEO, continued, “The S&B Top 15th ranking says to bank customers that their bank demonstrates exemplary management and safety as an institution.”
