Our focus on offering outstanding value is why Bankrate.com and Money Magazine named Banner the Best Regional Bank in America in 2017. Moreover, our financial strength and stability are key reasons Forbes named us No. 35 on its 2018 list of the 100 Best Banks in America, and why Bauer Financial has repeatedly assigned Banner its top, five-star rating.
