Northwest earns Forbes honor | News, Sports, Jobs


WARREN – Northwest Bank, a full-service financial institution offering a full range of business and personal banking products, has been recognized by Forbes as one of “The best banks in the world” for 2022, marking the third straight year Northwest has made the list.

Ranked 25th in the United States, the Forbes list of the best banks in the world is determined by a survey of customers ranking financial institutions on key satisfaction factors, including trust, customer service, digital services, fees and financial advice.

“We take great pride in the meaningful relationships we build with our customers,” said Ron Seiffert, chairman and CEO of Northwest Bank. “This award truly reflects the exceptional experiences our employees create for our customers every day. We are extremely grateful to our customers and sincerely appreciate their continued support and loyalty.

Forbes has teamed up with market research firm Statista for this year’s list. To determine the 2022 list of the best banks in the world, more than 45,000 customers in 27 countries were surveyed by Statista. All banks were rated based on overall recommendation and satisfaction and on five sub-dimensions. Four of the top 10 banks were American, while the rest included two banks from India, as well as from Brazil and the United Arab Emirates. The United States led the way with 75 award-winning banks, followed by Japan with 45 banks.

In February, Northwest Bank was also recognized by Forbes as one of America’s Best Midsize Employers for 2022.
