Best of Bauer 5-Star Rating

Coral Gables, Florida, BauerFinancial, Inc., the Nation’s Premier Bank Rating Firm, proudly affirms that Norway Savings Bank, Norway, Maine has once again earned its highest (5-Star) rating for financial strength and stability. Earning a 5-Star rating indicates this bank excels in areas of capital adequacy, profitability, asset quality and much more. Earning and maintaining this top rating for 120 consecutive quarters, means Norway Savings Bank has done so continuously since June 1990. This achievement has secured an even higher status for Norway Savings Bank as a “Best of Bauer Bank”. The “Best of Bauer” designation is reserved specifically for banks that have earned Bauer’s highest rating continuously for 25 years or longer.

As reported by Karen Dorway, president of BauerFinancial: “A recent Federal Reserve survey found that while fewer than half of big bank customers were satisfied with their overall banking experience, the vast majority of community bank customers are satisfied. And, local businesses dealing with community banks not only reported the most satisfaction, but also the most success. Those findings didn’t surprise us. Community banks, Norway Savings Bank included, are local small businesses themselves, so they have a definite leg up on outsiders.”

Norway Savings Bank has been helping its neighbors and friends since it began in 1866. Today, after 153 years, it continues to provide a superior personal experience through 24 conveniently located offices throughout Western and Southern Maine and can also be found online at
