We’re honored to receive yet another 5-star rating from BauerFinancial for the 44th consecutive quarter! Here is BauerFinancial’s release about the award.

Gateway Bank Bauer Financial

June 2021: Gateway Bank in Mesa, AZ has once again been awarded the highest (5-Star) rating for financial strength and stability from the Nation’s Premier Bank Rating Firm, BauerFinancial, Inc. In order to earn the 5-Star rating, Gateway Bank underwent a rigorous, independent analysis of its financial condition and came out on top! Gateway Bank has the strength to support its community as it consistently excels in areas such as capital strength, profitability, asset quality, and much more.


This is the 44th consecutive quarter that Gateway Bank has earned this top rating. That has earned Gateway Bank an even higher designation as an “Exceptional Performance Bank”, a status reserved for institutions that have earned Bauer’s highest rating consistently for at least 10 consecutive years.

“One thing that has been made clear in the past year and a half is that a bank is neither a building nor technology. While both are good and necessary, it’s the people behind the walls and technology that make a bank what it is. They are also what has made Gateway Bank such an invaluable resource for the community. Gateway Bank’s employees have shown tremendous dedication and commitment to both customers and the community”, notes Karen Dorway, president of BauerFinancial.

“Community banks, like Gateway Bank, help their neighbors through the good times and the bad. And Gateway Bank’s employees have done an admirable job, maintaining an unblemished balance sheet all the while.”

Established in 2007, Gateway Bank has been a trusted ally of the communities it serves for 14 years. Rest assured, 5-Star rated Gateway Bank’s personnel are eager to serve: at the branch, by phone and online at gcbaz.com.
