Lone Star National Bank Ranks in the Top 20th Percentile Nationwide Amongst Banks with assets between $3 billion to $10 billion S&P Global Market Intelligence’s Best-Performing Community Banks

McAllen, Tx – Lone Star National Bank today announced it has been named a top performing bank in the S&P Global Market Intelligence Top 50 Community Banks with assets of $3-10 billion. LSNB is the only bank headquartered in central and south Texas to be named and only 1 of 5 banks in the entire state that made the list.

The rankings assess the performance of banking institutions based on returns, growth, and funding, while placing a premium on the strength and risk profile of balance sheets. This recognition underscores LSNB’s commitment to excellence and highlights its impressive performance in key financial metrics.

In determining rankings, S&P Global Market Intelligence emphasized factors such as liquidity, low cost of funds (COF), and profitability. LSNB’s exceptional performance in these areas propelled it into the top 20th percentile among 200 banks which qualified to be reviewed, surpassing the median for all eligible banks in the metrics analyzed.

LSNB achieved a remarkable return on average assets before tax and extraordinary items, standing at 1.54% for the year. Despite industry-wide challenges stemming from the liquidity crisis following bank failures in the spring of 2023, LSNB maintained high liquidity and had in place one of the soundest risk management practices.

“I am immensely proud to announce our recognition as one of the best performing community banks in the nation by S&P Global Market Intelligence. This achievement is a testament to the unwavering support of our valued customers, whose trust and loyalty have propelled us to this prestigious distinction.
