Raymond James announced in its industry briefing dated, April 15, 2021, the winners of the ninth annual Raymond James Community Bankers Cup awards, recognizing the top 10 percent of community banks based on various profitability, operational efficiency, and balance sheet metrics. The pool of banks considered for recognition includes all exchange-traded domestic banks, excluding mutual holding companies and potential acquisition targets, with assets between $500 million and $10 billion as of December 31, 2020.
Of the 241 community banks considered for the 2020 Community Bankers Cup, the top 10 percent demonstrated superior performance based on the following measurements of financial performance and stability:
1) nonperforming assets to loans and real estate owned, 2) five-year average core deposit percentage,
3) net interest margin,
4) efficiency ratio,
5) return on average assets
6) return on average tangible common equity.
The banks were ranked by each of these measures and then summed all of the ranks to determine each community bank’s standing relative to the 241 community banks being analyzed. The top 10 percent or 25 banks (rounding up) are being recognized based on the overall score.
