Capital One Ranks Highest in Overall Customer Satisfaction for Fourth Consecutive Year
Although overall satisfaction with national banks slightly improved 5 points (on a 1,000-point scale) to 653 in 2023 from 648 in 2022, higher deposit interest rates at other financial institutions are driving customers to investment/wealth management and internet-only financial services providers, according to the J.D. Power 2023 U.S. National Banking Satisfaction Study,SM released today. Among the growing proportion of national bank customers with secondary deposit accounts, those with a secondary account at an investment/wealth management or internet-only financial company increased 6 percentage points to 50% in 2023.
“Deposit interest rates surely matter, but there are steps large banks can take to help minimize the deposit flow to secondary providers,” said Paul McAdam, senior director of banking and payments intelligence at J.D. Power. “Customers want banks to help them grow their money and save them time. Banks that ensure the banking process is easy for their customers, such as having an intuitive and easy-to-use mobile app, understandable credit cards and seamless processes for opening new accounts, are more likely to retain deposits, particularly among customers who have balances greater than $10,000.”
Capital One ranks highest in overall satisfaction for a fourth consecutive year, with a score of 706. Chase (674) ranks second and TD Bank (661) ranks third.
The study, now in its seventh year, provides a comprehensive view of the customer experience across retail bank product lines for nine national banks in the United States. It evaluates bank customer experience across seven factors: trust; people; account offerings; allowing customers to bank how and when they want; saving time and money; digital channels; and resolving problems or complaints.
The study defines a national bank as a U.S. bank holding company with domestic deposits exceeding $300 billion and at least 200 branches. The study is based on responses from 12,938 retail banking customers and was fielded in August-September 2023.
