First Business Makes High National ROAE List
MADISON, WI, – May 4, 2016 – First Business Financial Services, Inc. (NASDAQ: FBIZ) was ranked as one of the top 40 publically traded community banks and thrifts as ranked by its 3-year average return on average equity (“ROAE”) by American Banker.
“Profitability is under a lot of pressure for small institutions — expenses are up and yields on loans are down. But some are handling that pressure better than others, as our annual ranking of publicly traded banks and thrifts with less than $2 billion of assets shows,” states Bonnie McGeer at American Banker. First Business was one of just three companies from Wisconsin in the top 40.
