Webster Ranked Among World’s Best Banks by Forbes


Webster Bank was recognized among the World’s Best Banks in Forbes’ inaugural World’s Best Banks list. Only 60 banks in the United States were recognized for this honor.

In collaboration with analytics firm Statista, Forbes’ first annual list of World’s Best Banks is based on an independent survey from a vast sample of more than 65,000 bank customers from 23 different countries. Participants were asked to identify all banks where they have opened checking or savings accounts and then asked to rate the banks in the following areas: trust, terms & conditions, customer services, digital services, and financial advice.

Since its founding in 1935, Webster Bank has expanded to become a leading regional bank in the Northeast with more than $27 billion in assets and 157 banking centers from greater New York City to Boston.

Webster offers a full range of financial services, including business and consumer banking, mortgage, financial planning, trust, and investment services.

Most recently, Webster Bank has been recognized as New England’s top U.S. Small Business Administration lender, by dollar volume and best overall bank in the Northeast in Bank Director’s annual Ranking Banking study released in January 2019.
