The last half of 2008 was a bad time to be in the financial business. But a regional bank with several local branches actually earned awards for its performance during that troubled time.American National Bank which has branches in Glenwood Springs, Carbondale and Rifle and Eagle and Mesa counties was honored recently by VERIBANC, an independent national bank-rating company, for its financial performance and management over the last two quarters of 2008. Bank officials say theres a good chance it may earn a similar Blue Ribbon award for the first quarter of this year as well.American National was among a group of regional banks that never wrote subprime mortgages, and never bundled those mortgages into securities that were sold and traded based on the mistaken assumption that home values would always keep going up.Nathan said American National has its share of bad loans on the books right now. But overall, American National remained relatively conservative in its lending standards while bigger companies routinely made risky loans.Those conservative standards have become even more conservative over the last several months, Nathan said.But American National is still in the business of lending money. That message has sometimes been hard to get across to customers when the news is full of reports about bank failures and bailouts.
