First United Bank and Trust has been ranked 49th in the 2023 Top 200 Community Banks listing by American Banker. Each year, American Banker publishes the list of the top 200 performing publicly traded banks with under $2 billion in assets.
The banks that made this year’s list, which was based on data from year-end 2022, posted a lower median efficiency ratio, higher median net interest margin and a stronger median net loan growth compared with all publicly traded community banks. The top performers did better in liquidity and credit quality metrics related to this as well.
