BauerFinancial, Inc., the Nation’s Premier Bank Rating Firm, commends Rollstone Bank & Trust, Fitchburg, Massachusetts on its achievement of another 5-Star Superior Rating. Not only has Rollstone Bank & Trust earned Bauer’s highest (5-Star) rating for financial strength and stability, it has maintained that top rating for 101 consecutive quarters, sailing through one of the most trying economic times of our lifetimes and giving it an added designation of “Best of Bauer Bank”. This status is reserved solely for banks that have earned Bauer’s highest rating consistently for a minimum of 100 consecutive quarters. It also indicates that Rollstone Bank & Trust is indisputably one of the strongest banks in the nation.
“As the president of BauerFinancial, I am often asked what it takes to be a 5-Star bank,” reflects Karen Dorway, president of the research firm. “Like so many other things in life, success in banking boils down to knowledge. Knowledge of banking, of course, but knowledge of its customers and the communities the bank serves are equally important. This intimacy enables the bank to steer clear of danger and work with customers for a common goal. It’s what gets so many community banks, like Rollstone Bank & Trust, through the tough times unscathed.”
Rollstone Bank & Trust was established in 1846 and has been working side by side with neighbors and friends for 174 years, helping to make the community what it is today. Currently, Rollstone Bank & Trust operates through eight conveniently located offices in Fitchburg, Groton, Harvard, Leominster and Townsend and has a wealth management office in Worcester.
