Community Focus Pays Off as Charles River Bank Earns Highest 5-Star Rating

January 2012 - BAUERFINANCIAL Inc., Coral Gables, Florida, the nation's leading bank rating and research firm, proudly recognizes Charles River Bank, Medway, Massachusetts as a Superior 5-Star rated bank. A 5-Star rating denotes that Charles River Bank is one of the best in the nation in terms of its overall financial performance.

"The recent uproar against Big Banks has shed a whole new light on community banks, and for good reason," observes Karen L. Dorway, president of BAUERFINANCIAL. "While the primary focus of the big banks is dividend payments, smaller banks tend to be locals and therefore more in tune with the communities they serve. This community focus has paid off as Charles River Bank has earned Bauer's highest 5-Star rating for strength and stability.
