Forrester conducted our annual evaluation of the secure online banking websites of the six largest US banks — Bank of America, Chase, Citibank, PNC Bank, U.S. Bank, and Wells Fargo — using our Website User Experience and Functionality Benchmark (WSB) methodology. Wells Fargo and Bank of America once again took the top two spots — with Wells Fargo squeezing past Bank of America for the lead. Overall, our evaluation reveals that US banks have improved secure websites to align with customers' evolving needs and expectations.
