Arvest Bank Receives Forbes Magazine Recognition

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (March 5, 2019) – Arvest Bank has been recognized by Forbes magazine as one of the “World’s Best Banks” for 2019.

In collaboration with analytics firm Statista, Forbes has produced its first-ever “World’s Best Banks” list based on an independent survey from a vast sample of more than 40,000 bank customers across the world. Participants were asked to identify all banks where they have opened checking or savings accounts; they were then asked to rate the banks in the following areas: trust, terms & conditions, customer services, digital services, and financial advice.

Arvest is pleased that its brand of customer-focused banking has resulted in recognition based on feedback from its customers that reflects satisfaction with their relationship with the bank.

A total of 415 banks in 23 different countries received the distinction, with 60 of those based in the United States. On average, each bank recognized received 100 customer evaluations.

Arvest ranked 16th on the list of U.S. banks. The full list and an accompanying article can be found on the Forbes website.

This honor is the first Arvest has received from Forbes in 2019. 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.
