Recognizing Kearny Bank’s ongoing program that makes the EverFi financial literacy digital platform available to multiple New Jersey and New York high schools, EverFi has presented the Fairfield-based bank with a community service award.

A 10-unit course, the EverFi program provides about six hours of programming aimed at teaching, assessing, and certifying students in various finance-related topics, including credit scores, insurance, credit cards, student loans, mortgages, taxes, stocks, savings, and other critical concepts relevant to financial literacy standards. The award presented to Kearny Bank by EverFi – which employs the latest new media technology to bring complex financial concepts to life – was created in celebration of EverFi’s 10th anniversary.

“The ability to understand and manage personal finances is tremendously important – yet many young people these days are entering adulthood without this crucial information,” says Kearny Bank President and CEO Craig L.

Forbes survey: Kearny Bank among New Jersey’s five Best-In-State-Banks

A prestigious, new Forbes survey has recognized Fairfield-based Kearny Bank as one of New Jersey’s five Best-In-State-Banks.8/13/2018 Fairfield, NJ

A prestigious, new Forbes survey has recognized Fairfield-based Kearny Bank as one of New Jersey’s five Best-In-State-Banks. This recognition is focused on customer experiences, with specific emphasis on recommendations and overall satisfaction.

Forbes assigned Best-In-State rankings for banks in 49 states, based exclusively on information gathered online from a pool of 25,000 private U.S. citizens. The research firm Statista partnered with Forbes in conducting the nationwide survey.

“It’s an honor to be recognized on the Forbes New Jersey list, particularly since our placement was determined solely by input from customers,” says Craig L. Montanaro, President and CEO of Kearny Bank. “Our mantra at Kearny Bank places tremendous importance on providing the best banking experience to all those who utilize our services. The Forbes survey would seem to indicate that this longstanding focus is paying off.”

The five subdivisions in the research, which confirmed Kearny Bank’s inclusion on the New Jersey list, were trust, terms and conditions, branch services, digital services, and financial advice.

“The banking sector is intensely competitive, and any bank committed to prospering needs to be doing multiple things right,” explains Eric Heyer, Kearny Bank’s Senior Executive Vice President / Chief Operating Officer. “I’d suggest Kearny Bank’s inclusion on this Forbes listing of New Jersey’s five Best-In-State-Banks demonstrates that we do indeed excel on multiple fronts.”

In 2018, Kearny Bank became the fifth largest community bank in the New York metropolitan area (based on total assets), as a result of its merger with Clifton Savings Bank. Upon completion of this merger, Kearny Bank’s total assets increased from $4.8 billion to $6.6 billion.

Other banks included on Forbes’ New Jersey listing are OceanFirst Bank, Santander Bank, Beneficial Bank, and Investors Bank. The final, New Jersey list is available here.

In its survey, Forbes asked participants to list all banks at which they’d ever had a checking or savings account. From there, they were asked to assign ratings to all banks they’d listed, based on a variety of evaluation criteria. Nationwide, 124 different banks ultimately qualified for inclusion on the appropriate state listing. This total number represents only 2.2 percent of all U.S. banks.
