  1. Not sure how Old national bank got a five star rating when Florida college of business said they have a 320% CRE to equity exposure ? Now which “expert” analyst to believe?

    1. Hello Charles – Good question and I don’t have an answer. I will say that the FAU report is from an academic who just looks at one metric (CRE/Equity) and doesn’t look at credit quality, percent of loans in arrears, size of the loans, etc. I think to get the full picture of any bank’s risk would be through a detailed analysis of each and every loan, balance sheet, and other metrics but we know that’s not possible.

      The 5-star rating comes from a company where you can pay for the rating, so how legit is that?

      A company like Old National has been around since the 1800s. You’d hope they know their local markets and haven’t gotten crazy with their loan underwriting and practices. Only time will tell….
