Safety and reliability make First National a five-star institution

First National Bank Alaska has been named among the country’s safest, most-reliable financial institutions.

BauerFinancial, Inc. recently awarded First National a five-star rating for the 15th straight quarter. This rating, the highest available for strength and stability, means the bank excels in areas of capital, loan quality, profitability and more.

“Serving Alaskans in a trustworthy fashion is what we’ve set out to do every day for nearly a century,” said Betsy Lawer, First National’s Chair and President. “To consistently receive a five-star rating is a reflection of the hard work, dedication and local service provided by our employees.

“It’s also proof our customers can count on us to help keep their financial resources safe and secure while meeting their specific financial needs.”

The five-star 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.

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.
