“As a member-owned credit union, we’re honored to be recognized alongside many of the country’s most respected financial institutions, including PenFed, Citibank and Alliant,” said Chad Rogers, executive vice president and COO at Connexus, in a news release. “To be acknowledged across six categories for our competitive rates, low fees, robust and thoughtfully designed financial products, and best-in-class service demonstrates the incredible value we bring to our members – and inspires us to offer them even more exceptional experiences.”
In its review, Forbes Advisor highlighted Connexus’ high yields, attentive customer service, low fees, family friendly accounts and extensive nationwide accessibility. While not an official category, Forbes also praised the organization’s digital banking platform, noting the impressive rankings of the Connexus App on both the App Store and Google Play.
To select this year’s winners, Forbes Advisor analyzed a mix of traditional brick-and-mortar banks, online banks, and credit unions, ranking each in weighted categories including APY, fees, accessibility of funds, customer experience and digital experience. Only nationally accessible financial institutions were considered.
