GuruFocus Profitability Rank ranks how profitable a company is and how likely the company’s business will stay that way. It is based on these factors:

1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Profitability Rank is not directly related to the Financial Strength Rank. But if a company is consistently profitable, its financial strength will be stronger.

Compare:MTB, USB, PNC, PB, CFR » details
Traded in other countries:ABWPRB.USA, AB5.Germany,
Associated Banc-Corp was incorporated in Wisconsin in 1964. It is a bank holding company, through its network of bank and non-banking subsidiaries, provides banking and related financial services to individual and corporate customers. Through its banking subsidiary, Associated Bank, National Association and various non-banking subsidiaries, it provides an array of banking and non-banking products and services to individuals and businesses through over 200 banking offices serving more than 100 communities, primarily within its three-state branch footprint (Wisconsin, Illinois, and Minnesota). Its business is organized into three reportable segments: Commercial Banking, Consumer Banking, and Risk Management and Shared Services. The Commercial Banking segment serves a range of customer which includes businesses, developers, non-profits, municipalities, and financial institutions. The Consumer Banking segment serves individuals and small businesses through its various retail banking and private client offices, and provides companies of varying sizes with fiduciary services such as administration of pension, profit-sharing and other employee benefit plans, fiduciary and corporate agency services, and institutional asset management. The Risk Management and Shared Services segment include Corporate Risk Management, Credit Administration, Finance, Treasury, Operations, and Technology, which are key shared functions. The segment also includes Parent Company activity, intersegment eliminations and residual revenue and expenses, representing the difference between actual amounts incurred and the amounts allocated to the operating segments, including interest rate risk residuals (funds transfer pricing mismatches) and credit risk and provision residuals. The Company competes for loans, deposits, and financial services in all of its principal markets. It competes directly with other banks and non-bank institutions located within its markets, internet-based banks, out-of-market banks and bank holding companies that advertise or otherwise serve its markets, money market and other mutual funds, brokerage houses, and various other financial institutions. Additionally, it competes with insurance companies, leasing companies, regulated small loan companies, credit unions, governmental agencies, and commercial entities offering financial services products. It also faces direct competition from subsidiaries of bank holding companies that have far greater assets and resources. The Company is regulated by federal and state agencies and is subject to periodic examinations by those agencies.
