Gehant Bank earns 5-Star rating

WEST BROOKLYN — BauerFinancial, Inc., the Nation’s Premier Bank Rating Firm, proudly affirms that Gehant Bank, West Brooklyn, has once again earned it highest (5-Star) rating for financial strength and stability. Earning a 5-Star rating indicates this bank excels in areas of capital adequacy, profitability, asset quality and much more. Earning and maintaining this top rating for 57 quarters, puts Gehant Bank in an even higher bracket as an “Exceptional Performance Bank.” This title is achieved after successfully earning the top 5-Star rating for 40 consecutive quarters, (10 years,) or longer.

“This achievement requires tremendous resilience and fortitude,” observes Karen Dorway, president of BauerFinancial. “We saw a lot of banks that were lacking those qualities that are, unfortunately, no longer around. But community banks, like Gehant Bank, have some definite advantages. Its smaller size allows its team to know each customer more intimately, which not only makes every customer a priority, it also improves loan underwriting.”

Gehant Bank has been making its neighbors its number one priority since 1897. Today, after 121 years, it is creating a better banking experience for its customers through two conveniently located offices in Triumph and West Brooklyn and online at
