Simmons Bank has been named a 2019 “Best-In-State Bank” in Arkansas and Tennessee by Forbes, ranking second and third respectively. The recognition is determined by an independent survey of more than 25,000 U.S. citizens.


“We are honored by this vote of confidence from Forbes and our customers,” said Marty Casteel, chairman and CEO of Simmons Bank. “Simmons has served our communities as a trusted financial advisor for more than 100 years, and we’re proud of awards that build on that legacy.”


Survey participants were asked to rate all banks where they had previously had a checking or savings account. Scores were based on participants’ overall recommendations and general satisfaction, as well as five subdimensions that included Trust, Terms and Conditions, Branch Services, Digital Services and Financial Advice.
