Press Release

CorTrust Bank has been named a 2022 Best Bank in South Dakota by Forbes Magazine. This is the third time CorTrust Bank has received this recognition over the past four years. “It’s an honor to hold the distinction of being one of South Dakota’s Best Banks,” said Jack Hopkins, CorTrust Bank President and CEO. “I consider this a true testament to our outstanding employees and their commitment to CorTrust’s customers and communities.”

According to Forbes, they went directly to customers, partnering with market research firm Statista to conduct more than 26,000 in-depth interviews about banking relationships. Respondents answered questions that centered around six areas of banking including trust, branch services, digital services, terms and conditions, customer services and financial advice. Just 2.7% of banks nationwide made the cut for the best-in-state rankings.

“I’m grateful our customers trust us with their financial needs and continue to choose CorTrust as their banking partner,” said Hopkins. “We will strive to raise expectations for years to come.”
