Ent Credit Union took the top spot in Colorado on Forbes’ inaugural “Best-In-State” Banks and Credit Unions list.
For the list, Forbes partnered with Statista, which surveyed more than 25,000 customers in the U.S. for their opinions on their current and former banking relationships.
“The banks and credit unions were rated on overall recommendations and satisfaction, as well as five subdimensions (trust, terms and conditions, branch services, digital services and financial advice),” Forbes said. “Credit unions, which are member-owned financial cooperatives, outpace banks with an average score of 80 versus 75.2 for banks.”
Ent Credit Union scored 86.77 and was followed by Credit Union of Colorado (score: 80.79), Public Service Credit Union (score: 78.57), Security Service Federal Credit Union (score: 77.98) and Bellco Credit Union (score: 77.31), respectively.
Forbes noted that Navy Federal Credit Union, which has a presence in 30 states, was the only credit union eliminated for its reach.
