Charleston, S.C. –United Bank has once again earned the position of the No. 1 bank in South Carolina on Forbes’ list of Best-in-State Banks for 2024. Forbes presented its annual ranking of banks in each state according to an independent survey of U.S. consumers and a sentiment analysis of publicly available reviews and ratings, which resulted in a top spot for United.

“After achieving the Best Bank title in 2023, we are beyond proud to be recognized by our South Carolina customers with this honor for the second year in a row,” said Marshall Cooper, Regional President, United Bank. “United is committed to deepening the personal relationships we have with our customers and communities here and serving all our stakeholders with excellence in everything we do.”

Forbes’ survey participants were asked to share their level of satisfaction with their bank or credit union, their willingness to recommend it to others, and to rate the organization on such criteria as: customer service, the quality of financial advice offered by representatives, fee structures, ease of navigating digital services and accessing help at branch locations, and the degree of trust the financial institutions inspired.

United Bank has forged personal relationships built on a foundation of trust and served its stakeholders with safe, sound, and secure practices throughout its 185-year history. Since its founding, United has grown from a single-office bank to a premier regional banking company with a strong presence throughout the Mid-Atlantic and Southeast, including 34 locations in South Carolina and more than 65 across the broader Carolinas.

Today, the Company holds approximately $30 billion in assets and serves a consumer and commercial customer base that is diversified across lines of business as well as geography. United continues to meet the ever-changing financial needs of its customers by providing them with financial education and access to opportunities expected from a global financial institution while delivering the personal service customers expect from their local bank.

The prestigious Best-in-State Banks awards are presented by Forbes and Statista Inc., a leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider. More information and a full list of this year’s winners may be found online: Forbes 2024 America's Best Banks In Each State List.
