The Bank of Oak Ridge was once again recognized as a 5-Star rated bank by BauerFinancial, Inc., the nation's leading bank rating and research firm. Bauer's highest 5-star rating indicates that the Bank of Oak Ridge excels in areas of capital, asset quality, profitability and much more. What's more, the Bank of Oak Ridge has earned this highest rating for the most recent 97 consecutive quarters, which qualifies it for the even more elite group of "Sustained Superiority Banks." Only three percent of the nation's banks can claim this distinction with such consistency.

"Since 1983, BauerFinancial has been rating the nation's financial institutions," reflects Karen L. Dorway, president of the rating firm. "In all that time, one thing has remained constant: top performing institutions maintain strong policies, prudent underwriting and responsible investment. The Bank of Oak Ridge is a bank you can put your trust in."

Financial strength has been the priority for the Bank of Oak Ridge since its inception in 1910. Through its conveniently located branch office on North Oak Street in Oak Ridge, the bank has been a source of pride for its local community for 103 years. The Bank of Oak Ridge is a member of the FDIC and an equal housing lender.
