Arvest Bank named among ‘World’s Best’

Banking institution recognized by Forbes magazine

Arvest Bank has once again been listed by Forbes magazine as one of the “World’s Best Banks” for the third consecutive year. The list is based on an independent survey from a sample of more than 43,000 bank customers across the world. Arvest was also ranked among the top 10 US banks for the second consecutive year.

“Recognition based on customer feedback is especially gratifying and we owe a special thank-you to our customers for their patience during the past year and for continuing to give us the opportunity to serve them,” said Chad Evans, president for Arvest in the Joplin region. “Our associates deserve a big thank-you, too, for persevering through so many challenges.”

All financial institutions – brick-and-mortar and online-only – offering checking and savings account options were considered, and survey participants were asked to identify all banks where they have opened checking or savings accounts. Participants had to rate every bank at which they have – or have had – a checking or savings account on overall recommendation and satisfaction. Additionally, they had to rate the institutions in five criteria: trust, terms & conditions, customer services, digital services, and financial advice.

“It’s worth noting how many of our customers have changed the way they bank over the last year,” said Evans. “While we plan for a return to a more normal way of doing business, we want our customers to know we are dedicated to innovation and driving change. We want to serve in the ways that are most convenient to our customers.”

The full list and an accompanying article can be found on the Forbes website. Forbes produced its “World’s Best Banks” list in collaboration with Statista, its market research partner.

This honor is the first Arvest has received from Forbes in 2021. In addition to being part of the last two “World’s Best Banks” lists, Forbes named Arvest one of “America’s Best Large Employers” in both 2017 and 2018, as well as one of “America’s Best Employers for Women” in 2018.
