Minster Bank finishes 2022 with 9.81% increase in net income


MINSTER — Community banks succeed when local economies thrive, and their success is interwoven with the consumers, communities, and small businesses they support. In 2022, key financial performance measures of return on average shareholders’ equity and return on average assets were 17.31% and 1.09%, respectively. Minster Bank saw 4.80% growth in our loan portfolio despite all Paycheck Protection Program loans forgiven by the Small Business Administration from pandemic relief measures. Minster Bank finished the year strong with a 9.81% increase in net income.

Dale Luebke, president and CEO, said, “With the significant increase in activity that we experienced this year, it would not have been possible without all of the hard work, dedication and perseverance of our employees to accommodate the needs of our customers. Our employees have done an outstanding job in serving the needs of our local communities.”

His report continues:

Through a relationship with your local bank, individuals and businesses can realize important economic benefits. Money being managed by Minster Bank is re-invested in the community through loans and other financial services for individuals, families, and small businesses. When you maintain a checking, savings, or other type of account with a community bank, you increase their ability to offer competitive mortgages and small business loans.
