"Also, on July 11, 2012, Trinity Bank was notified that it has received a financial strength rating of A or Excellent from Weiss Ratings, the nation's lending independent provider of ratings and analyses of financial services companies. Fewer than 2% of the 19,000 institutions in the nation meet Weiss Ratings' criteria for exceptional financial strength."
