United Community Bank ranked in top ten on Forbes list of World’s Best Banks

United Community Bank has been ranked in the top 10 of the “World’s Best Banks” according to the 2022 list published by Forbes in collaboration with market research firm Statista. The list, which was based largely on customer satisfaction data compiled by Statista, ranked banks in 27 countries across the globe.

Of the 75 banks in the United States that made the list, United ranked third and was the top bank with a regional Southeast presence. This is the third year United has appeared on the annual list since it was created in 2019.

“We are honored to be recognized as a top performer for customer service on a global scale. We are dedicated to providing our customers with an excellent experience across all our channels, and it’s gratifying to see that commitment make a difference in how our customers view us,” said Lynn Harton, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of United Community Bank. “This is the second recognition our team has received based on customer satisfaction within the past few weeks. We could not do this without our employees, who go above and beyond every day to serve our customers. I thank them for their dedication to serving their customers and communities.”

In collaboration with Statista, Forbes surveyed more than 45,000 customers around the globe about their opinions on their banking relationships. Banks were rated on overall recommendation and key attributes like trust, terms and conditions, customer services, digital services and financial advice. All financial institutions offering a checking or savings account were included in the study.
