Forbes recognizes Jefferson Bank, as part of Central Bancompany

For the sixth year in a row, Forbes, recognized Jefferson Bank as part of Central Bancompany as one of America’s Best Banks in its annual review of the nation’s 100 largest financial institutions. Central Bancompany ranked 28th on the Forbes’ 2015 survey.

“We are elated and gratified to, once again, have this honor bestowed upon us. I want to thank our employee and management team, who made this possible. They continue to serve our customers and businesses in an exemplary manner, making this recognition possible,” said Bryan Cook, Central Bancompany President and Chief Executive Officer.

To rank the nation’s banks, Forbes used data collected by SNL Financial. The Charlottesville, Va., company gauged each bank based on eight criteria: return on average equity; net interest margin; non-performing loans; non-performing assets; reserves; a leverage ratio and two capital ratios.
