Investor Relations

Record earnings driven by our metro markets and continued long-standing West Texas relationships.

2023 was the strongest year in Vista Bank's 112-year history.

While 2023 was a year of uncertainty and unrest within the overall economy and financial industry specifically, Vista Bank maintained robust liquidity, increased our earnings, and continued to grow, resulting in the strongest year in the Bank’s 112-year history.

Recently ranked #10 out of 606 banks between $1-5 billion in assets nationally by CB Resource, Inc., Vista Bank remains intensely focused on core banking fundamentals including capital, liquidity, strategic M&A, and attracting and retaining the strongest talent in the industry.
