PLATTSBURGH — Arrow Financial Corp., parent of Glens Falls National Bank, was recently recognized by American Banker Magazine as one of the nation’s top mid-tier banks based on its return on equity.
Arrow ranks 16th on the Mid-Tier Banks List. The magazine’s August edition looked at nearly 200 public and private companies with between $2 billion and $10 billion in assets. Arrow ranked 16th with a three-year return on average equity of 13.63 percent. It was the only upstate New York bank and one of just three newcomers in the top 25.
The complete list, “Forward March: Annual Ranking of Mid-Tier Banks,” can be viewed at americanbanker.com/magazine.
Arrow was included in the mid-tier group for the first time this year as a result of its assets exceeding $2 billion. The company previously appeared on American Banker’s annual list of community banks with less than $2 billion in assets, ranking 11th last year out of a pool of more than 1,000 institutions.
