Forbes ranks BancFirst top bank in Oklahoma, 10th best in nation
BancFirst today announced that Forbes has named BancFirst as one of the best banks in the world in its World’s Best Banks 2020 report.
Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to conduct a study of approximately 40,000 banking consumers in nearly two dozen countries based on their opinions on current and former banking relationships. Participants were asked to name all banks where they have or previously had a checking or savings account. The participants then rated each bank based on various evaluation criteria including on overall banking recommendation, general satisfaction, trust, terms and conditions, customer service, digital services, and financial advice.
The results of the Forbes Statista survey for 2020 placed BancFirst as the tenth best bank in the United States, making it the top ranked Oklahoma-based bank on the list. The full list and the accompanying article can be found on the Forbes website: https://www.forbes.com/worlds-best-banks/.
“This recognition by Forbes is a direct reflection of the loyalty of the men and women working at each of our 120 locations and their dedication to the core values of our company,” said David Harlow, CEO, BancFirst Corporation. “Rankings based upon financial performance are of course important, but being ranked in this way by our own customers, recognizing the superior customer service provided by our bankers, is in many ways more rewarding.”
BancFirst Jenks/Glenpool president, Chris Smith, commented, “I am so proud of our bankers and their dedication to our customers. I am not surprised they helped us become one of the best banks in the world. They consistently exemplify the mission, vision, and values of BancFirst.”
In 2018, BancFirst was recognized on Forbes inaugural list as a Best-In-State Bank and in 2019 Forbes named BancFirst as a Best-In-State Employer, BancFirst was the only bank to be named to the list. Additionally, BancFirst ranked in the Top 10 on Forbes “Top Performing Banks” for four consecutive years.
