McALLEN, Texas – Lone Star National Bank today announced it has been named a top performing bank in the S&P Global Market Intelligence Top 50 Community Banks with assets of $3-10 billion.

In determining rankings, S&P Global Market Intelligence emphasized factors such as liquidity, low cost of funds (COF), and profitability.

LSNB achieved a remarkable return on average assets before tax and extraordinary items, standing at 1.54% for the year. Despite industry-wide challenges stemming from the liquidity crisis following bank failures in the spring of 2023, LSNB maintained high liquidity and had in place one of the soundest risk management practices.

“I am immensely proud to announce our recognition as one of the best performing community banks in the nation by S&P Global Market Intelligence. This achievement is a testament to the unwavering support of our valued customers, whose trust and loyalty have propelled us to this prestigious distinction. Over the past 40 years, we have diligently built a foundation of strength, integrity, commitment to excellence, and fostering peace of mind among the communities we proudly serve in south Texas. On behalf of our Board of Directors, this honor reinforces our dedication to delivering exceptional service in relationship banking, and we remain deeply grateful for the opportunity to continue serving and growing stronger in Texas,” S. David Deanda Jr., President of Lone Star National Bank.
