NERDWALLET RECOGNIZES POPULAR COMMUNITY BANK FOR CONSUMER-FRIENDLY BANKING

Popular Community Bank has been recognized by personal finance website NerdWallet for its consumer-friendly products and services in the Fall of 2013.

Popular Community Bank was selected as a “best bank” for Free Checking, Free ATM access and Mobile Banking.

“Popular Community Bank provides customers with a convenient banking experience,” said NerdWallet analyst, John Gower. “We’re pleased to recognize Popular’s free checking, free ATM access and mobile banking services.”

NerdWallet’s Consumer Banking Index evaluates banks and credit unions based on 5 criteria: Free Checking, High-Yield Savings, Branch/ATM Access, Online/Mobile Access, and Security. These criteria were selected by a survey of consumers as the top considerations when choosing a financial institution. Fall 2013 marks the inaugural release of this index and includes 50 of the nation’s largest banks.

Receiving high marks for each criteria serves as an indication of a bank’s superior value to consumers.

"We pride ourselves on understanding the needs of our customers and making the banking experience pleasant and extraordinary. It is extremely gratifying to be recognized by Nerd Wallet for our comprehensive, consumer-friendly products and services. We constantly strive to develop the latest technology to make banking more efficient, while maintaining our community roots and high touch approach," said Manuel Chinea, Chief Operating Officer at Popular Community Bank.
