Bar Harbor Bankshares (BHB) has been named to the American Banker Magazine’s Top 200 Publicly Traded Community Banks list for 2015. Those who made the list are publicly traded banks and thrifts with less than $2 billion of assets, posting a three-year average ‘return on equity’ of 8.66% or higher, along with a capital adequacy requirement. Out of a field of 851 financial institutions throughout the United States, Bar Harbor Bankshares was ranked number 95 and the only bank in Maine to make the list. In all of New England only eight banks made the list, and Bar Harbor Bankshares was number six. This is the second year in a row that Bar Harbor Bankshares has been named to this list. Last year BHB was #118 and again the only bank in the state of Maine to make the list, and only one of a few in the northeast to receive this recognition. “We are proud to be one of the Top 200 Community Banks in the nation for the second year in a row, and to be moving up on the list,” said Curtis Simard, CEO and President of Bar Harbor Bank & Trust.
