According to a recent GOBankingRates survey, more than one-third of respondents choose their bank based on its location and convenience. In addition, a majority of Americans are missing out on the opportunity to earn more interest on their accounts, and 30 percent of those surveyed claimed to not have a bank account at all. With the release of the Best Banks of 2020, GOBankingRates is seeking to inspire Americans to explore the benefits of better banking by comparing accounts, interest rates, fees and more in order to protect and grow your wealth.

Whether you want the benefits of a high-interest savings account or just don't want your hard-earned money eaten away by frivolous monthly charges and overdraft fees, it all comes down to which bank you choose, said Andrew Murray, researcher at GOBankingRates. I'm hopeful these rankings will help people to better understand the basics of banking and empower them to take the first step by opening a bank account with—or switching to—a better bank.

The eighth annual release of the Best Banks follows in the footsteps of GOBankingRates' yearly rankings of the Best Brokers and the Best Credit Cards, as they strive to embolden their millions of monthly visitors to turn their financial goals into milestones and money dreams into realities.
