Bank of Ozarks gets top mark for assets

Northwest Arkansas Democrat-Gazette - - BUSINESS & FARM - — David Smith

Bank of the Ozarks has been named the top per­form­ing bank in the coun­try in its as­set cat­e­gory for the fifth straight year by Bank Direc­tor mag­a­zine.

Bank Direc­tor’s bank per­for­mance score­card eval­u­ates and ranks the 300 largest pub­licly traded banks. Bank of the Ozarks, with $20 bil­lion in assets, is in the $5 bil­lion to $50 bil­lion cat­e­gory.

The mag­a­zine used five mea­sure­ments re­lated to prof­itabil­ity, cap­i­tal strength and as­set qual­ity to de­ter­mine the No. 1 bank.

It marks the 11th time in seven years that na­tional or­ga­ni­za­tions have named the Lit­tle Rock bank as No. 1 in the na­tion.

S&P Global Mar­ket In­tel­li­gence (for­merly SNL Fi­nan­cial) has named Bank of the Ozarks the No. 1 bank four times and the ABA Bank­ing Jour­nal has twice ranked it as the coun­try’s top bank.
