Goppert Financial Bank among KC Business Journal’s

“Five Strongest Midsize Banks in Kansas City”


LATHROP, MO (April 15, 2024) – Goppert Financial Bank has emerged as one of Kansas City’s five strongest midsize banks of 2023, according to a recent Kansas City Business Journal article. Data from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.’s year-end data for every bank in the Kansas City Area was used to determine the strongest banks between $250 million and $1 billion in assets.


“This recognition was a surprise to the bank,” said Corey Strider, Goppert Financial Bank President & CEO. “Our bank was recognized some years ago and we had forgotten that the Kansas City Business Journal analyzed the public data. To my knowledge, they review all banks in the Kansas City area and produce a listing of the strongest area financial institutions annually.”


Described as “one of the area’s most aggressive lenders,” according to the Kansas City Business Journal article, Goppert Financial Bank has surpassed the category of “small bank” for the Business Journal ranking.


“Bank rating agencies, to include Bauer Financial, have consistently given their highest ratings to the bank. However, it makes an impression to have a local economic trade journal recognize the commitment of ownership and staff to operate the bank in a well advised, safe, and sound manner,” continued Strider. “Our bank continues to make diligent efforts to provide our customers with current technological resources, competitive rates, quality bank products, knowledgeable staff, and excellent customer service.”
