Forbes partnered with market research firm Statista, a global business data platform specializing in market and consumer data, to gauge which firms have the most satisfied customers. The partnership assessed nearly 25,000 customers in the U.S for their opinions on their current and former banking relationships. The banks and credit unions were rated on overall recommendations and satisfaction, as well as five subdimensions: trust, terms and conditions, branch services, digital services and financial advice.
