BauerFinancial of Coral Gables, Fla., the nation’s premier bank rating firm, is proud to announce that Richland State Bank, Rayville, has once again secured its highest, 5-Star rating.

Earning and sustaining this top 5-Star rating for 75 consecutive quarters, Richland State Bank has also procured a top 10 percent designation. This means that Richland State Bank has maintained Bauer’s highest rating consistently for longer than 90 percent of the industry. 

“A lot of things have changed since the Great Recession,” reflects Karen L.

Community banks, like Richland State Bank, have the upper hand on that. Through personal interaction, they can meet their customers’ needs today while anticipating them for tomorrow.”
