First National Bank Alaska was chosen as one of America’s Best-In-State Banks 2021 by Forbes and was the only bank in Alaska to receive the honor.

The global media company conducted its annual survey with market research firm Statista. More than 25,000 consumers in the United States responded about their banking relationship. Participants were asked questions designed to determine their overall satisfaction with their bank, focusing on the following banking categories: level of trust, terms and conditions, branch services, digital services, customer service, and financial advice. Of the 4,987 FDIC-insured banks in the United States eligible for the award, only 2.7% are named to the list.

“Receiving this award in its 100th year of serving Alaskans is an incredible honor for First National,” said Betsy Lawer, Board Chair and CEO. “I want to extend my heartfelt gratitude to our loyal customers and congratulate the nearly 650 local employees who strive every day to provide excellent customer service. Being ranked as the number one bank in Alaska by Forbes is a reflection of employee dedication to helping fellow Alaskans succeed.”

For those interested in Southeast, our focus on that region provides updates on Kensington Mine, Tongass FCU, the troll fishery, and Juneau’s growing landfill.
