American Riviera Bank

For the past seven consecutive years, we’ve received recognition from The Findley Reports, but this is our first ‘Super Premier’ rating.

American Riviera Bank, the second-largest community bank based in the city of Santa Barbara, recently received the “Super Premier” performing designation by The Findley Reports. This distinguished designation is the highest possible rating for a California community bank to attain.

“Our hard work and commitment to our community paid off, and being named a ‘Super Premier’ performing bank is reason to celebrate,” said American Riviera Bank Chair of the Board Lawrence Koppelman. “For the past seven consecutive years, we’ve received recognition from The Findley Reports, but this is our first ‘Super Premier’ rating.”

In naming American Riviera Bank to the “Super Premier” performing list, The Findley Reports, deemed the most comprehensive financial institution analysis materials for comparison and evaluation of California’s banking industry, considered the bank’s growth, return on assets, return on equity and loan quality. In addition to its “Super Premier” performing designation, American Riviera Bank in 2016 was also rated five stars by BauerFinancial.

“I want to thank our board of directors, our employees and our clients for helping us achieve these accolades,” concluded Jeff DeVine, President and Chief Executive Officer of American Riviera Bank.
