Firm overview

Stock Yards Bank was founded in 1904 and now has 37 branches in Cincinnati, Louisville and Indianapolis.  Stock Yards Bank consistently ranks among the strongest, fastest-growing community banks in the country, as measured by earnings growth and its high returns on equity and assets. The Company has been recognized by U.S. Banker on several occasions as one of the top-performing community banks in the nation. For its performance for 2014, S.Y.

Products and/or services

For 112 years, Stock Yards has thrived as a premier community bank.  Stock Yards has evolved from a small bank serving the livestock industry to a nationally recognized, regional bank known for exceptional service all supported by a strong capital structure and consistently strong asset quality.  Our capabilities align well with those of national banks, but our focus has always been building a comfortable relationship for our customers that can only be given by a trusted partner – an approach we refer to as “banking the way it used to be.”
