Several Oklahoma community banks rank among nation's best

A recent finding by SNL Financial confirms what many OBA-member banks already knew: Oklahoma community banks are among the best in the country. Fourteen of the top 100 banks under $500 million are based in the Sooner State.

“I'm not at all surprised to see these rankings,” said OBA President Roger Beverage. “I've said for some time that we have some of the best community bankers ever in Oklahoma and these numbers confirm it.

“In particular, Farmers Exchange Bank, Cherokee is once again the top-rated bank in this category, followed closely by Bank 7 in Oklahoma City that comes in ranked at number 3,” Beverage said.

The rest of the list is comprised of the following banks:
