Mountain Valley Bank earns 5-Stars rating

Mountain Valley Bank N.A., Elkins, has been recognized once again as a 5-Star rated bank by BauerFinancial Inc., the nation’s leading bank rating and research firm.

BauerFinancial’s highest 5-Star rating indicates Mountain Valley Bank excels in areas of capital, asset quality, profitability and much more. What’s more, Mountain Valley Bank has earned this highest rating for the most recent 92 consecutive quarters, which qualifies it for the even more elite group of “Sustained Superiority Banks.” Only 5 percent of the nation’s banks can claim this distinction with such consistency.

“Since 1983, BauerFinancial has been rating the nation’s financial institutions,” said 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. Mountain Valley Bank is a bank you can put your trust in.”

Financial strength has been the priority for Mountain Valley Bank since its inception in 1909. Through its four conveniently located branch offices in Elkins, Mill Creek and Parsons, Mountain Valley Bank has been a source of pride for its local community for 104 years. Mountain Valley Bank is a member of the FDIC and an Equal Housing Lender.
