Earning a 5-Star rating indicates this bank excels in areas of capital adequacy, profitability, asset quality and much more. Earning and maintaining this top rating for 98 consecutive quarters puts Chelsea Groton Bank in the Top 10% of the banks in the nation. In fact, reaching this milestone gives Chelsea Groton Bank an even higher designation as a “Sustained Superiority Bank”, a title reserved specifically for Top 10%.
