First National is once again a five-star institution

For the 12th consecutive quarter, First National Bank Alaska has been recognized as one of the top banks in America.

BauerFinancial, Inc. recently bestowed First National with a five-star rating, the highest rating available for strength and stability. The rating means the bank excels in areas of capital, loan quality, profitability and more.

The rating is based on an evaluation of financial data provided by First National to federal regulators. Bauer, one of the nation’s most-respected ratings firms, analyzes the data and issues the rating.

“Because of its inherent focus on relationships, community banks like First National are uniquely positioned to serve its communities in a way no one else can,” Bauer President Karen L. Downey said. “Those relationships pay off for both the bank and its customers.”

Alaskan-owned and operated since 1922, First National proudly meets the financial needs of Alaskans with ATMs and branches in 18 communities throughout the state. Visit for more information about Alaska’s largest locally-owned bank and access to efficient and secure online banking services.
