June 15, 2012 – Colonial American Bank announces it has received an “A”, or “Excellent” rating for lending to small businesses from bankinggrades.com, a proprietary online tool that grades every bank on its commitment to small business lending. The “A” rating signifies that a bank invests 25% or more of its deposits in small business loans. Colonial American Bank is ranked 491 out of 6,716 banks in America.
"Colonial American Bank is committed to helping small businesses in our community and we are pleased to be in the top seven percent of banks who were rated for making small business loans," said Anthony Giordano, III, President and CEO. "By making decisions at the local level, we are able to focus on creating relationships with businesses and provide flexibility to customize loans and deposit services to meet their needs.”
According the web site, Banking Grades is a proprietary online tool that grades every bank on its commitment to small business lending. Banking Grades is based on data gathered from quarterly FDIC call reports. Every bank regulated by the FDIC is required to submit loan data on a quarterly basis. A Banking Grade is determined by dividing; (1) the total dollar value of loans made by a bank under $1,000,000 by (2) the total amount of domestic deposits held by said bank. “Based on our experience of helping small businesses find financing, we believe that a one million dollar loan is a good barometer of small business lending,” explains Ami Kassar, CEO of MultiFunding, a small business financial advisory firm. Banking Grades is sponsored by Hana Small Business Lending, The Receivables Exchange and IOU Central.
