Adding to the list of recognitions BBVA USA has received in the past few months, MyBankTracker listed BBVA USA in its Best of Banking Awards, naming it one of the Best South Regional Banks for 2021.
According to the online banking information resource, BBVA was one of only three banks named in the category. The 11th annual Best of Banking Awards honorees were chosen by MyBankTracker’s editorial staff, who compared, reviewed, and ranked hundreds of financial institutions and products across 24 categories, including the top national banks, online banks, savings accounts, checking accounts, credit cards, brokerages and more.

“It’s very humbling to see a steady amount of awards come our way over the years, and especially over the past few months after a particularly challenging year,” said BBVA USA CEO Javier Rodriguez Soler. “While we were placed in this category because of our products, it’s the people behind the creation and facilitation of these products that put us over the top. I work with a great group of people who are some of the most hardworking professionals in the financial industry. This award validates that.”
MyBankTracker is an independent comparison website helping consumers make smart banking and financial decisions. The mission is to match consumers to their perfect bank by providing and tracking in-depth information on more than 5,000 banks, credit unions and financial products.
"Following a year of economic uncertainty, it's crucial for consumers to choose the right bank account and financial products," says Simon Zhen, the personal finance site's senior research analyst and lead curator of the awards. "What suits one consumer may not be the right fit for another. We were founded at the height of the Great Recession to bring transparency to consumers and help change the way they bank. Now in our 11th year, we find ourselves in a different economic crisis. We hope this year's list acts as a starting point for those looking to streamline their banking, make the most of their hard-earned money and grow their investment portfolio in 2021."

This is only the latest award the bank has received in the past three months, as it was also highlighted by GoBankingRates this month in three categories in its Best Banks of 2021 rankings. BBVA USA was also recognized by Greenwich Associates in November in two customer experience honors. The bank was honored as a leader in the research firm’s commercial middle market and small business banking lists, where only a handful of U.S. banks were recognized.
BBVA USA Banker Solutions Director Diego Blanco also recently received the Banking Leader of the Year Bronze Award from GDS for his team’s work in 2020 to incorporate a homogenous user experience for optimal branch & digital operations.
