5-Star Marquis Bank: Making a Difference in Your Neighborhood

June 5th, 2019 • Press

Marquis Bank has achieved another Superior 5-Star Rating from BauerFinancial, the Nation’s Premier Bank Rating Firm. In the 30-plus years that Bauer has been analyzing banks, there has been a rise of increasingly complicated investments as well as burgeoning regulation. Each has added another hurdle when it comes to earning a 5-Star Rating from Bauer, yet none have been a problem for Marquis Bank. Not only has the bank maintained safe capital levels, well in excess of what regulators require, Marquis Bank has been helping its neighbors and local businesses grow their community with prudent lending and innovative solutions – all without compromising its own financial health in the process.

“This is the beauty of community banking,” notes Karen Dorway, president of BauerFinancial. “The success of a community bank directly correlates to the success of the community it serves. Community banks don’t need exotic investment instruments to make money for their shareholders. They much prefer to invest in local businesses and reap the benefits along with their neighbors. This approach has served Marquis Bank very well as Marquis Bank has earned and maintained Bauer’s top 5-Star rating for 25 consecutive quarters.

Now, after 12 years, Marquis Bank operates through three conveniently located offices in Aventura, Coral Gables and Fort Lauderdale and can also be found online at
