About Us

Republic Bank & Trust Company (RBCAA NASDAQ listing), was founded in 1982 and has grown into the largest Kentucky-based bank with over $3 billion in assets and over 40 retail banking centers primarily located throughout Kentucky.

In 2013, Republic Bank has continued the trend of consistently being rated as one of the best community banks in the country by a variety of sources. For the second consecutive year, Republic Bancorp has been recognized as the best performing bank in the U.S. based on financial performance and level of capital. In the first quarter 2013 edition of Bank Director Magazine, Republic Bancorp was rated number one based on a combined ranking on two financial metrics: core return on tangible common equity (ROTCE) and the ratio of average tangible common equity (TCD) to tangible assets. In addition to this recent top rating, Republic was ranked #4 by the ABA’s Banking Journal in its April 2011 listing of “Banking’s Top Performers”. In 2010 Republic was listed as one of the best performing banks in the country by four separate banking publications. Republic was also ranked #1 out of 155 mid-sized banks by Freddie Mac for quality servicing of secondary market loans and the U.S. Small Business Administration has recognized Republic Bank as the highest community bank producer of SBA loans in Kentucky each of the last 2 years.
