In an inaugural industry report released on September 28, 2023, D.A. Davidson named ServisFirst Bancshares, Inc. as one of the first 17 companies that has qualified for the official Best-of-Breed Bison designation. The Best-of-Breed Bison report, a department-wide research initiative undertaken by D.A. Davidson, showcases the highest quality businesses under coverage at D.A. Davidson within the purview of institutional analysts. Each company is evaluated by 12 criteria across 5 different categories: Outstanding Business Opportunity, Enduring Moat, Exceptional Financials, Shareholder-Oriented Management, and Compelling Risk/Reward Profile.

The report noted that “SFBS is an organic growth story that operates in select Southeastern metro markets – all benefitting from healthy economic growth, identified key industries and employers, and in-migration of people and businesses. The bank aims to continue opportunistic expansion in new metro markets over time… and, in an industry well known for rapid consolidation over past decades, SFBS is unique for its steadfast aversion to growth via acquisitions.”
