Columbia Bank is proud to announce it has been recognized as one of America’s “Best Regional Banks 2024” by Newsweek and Plant-A Insights Group.

It is awards like these that remind our constituents that they can always Count on Columbia.”  

The study awarded the best 500 regional institutions (250 regional banks and 250 credit unions) through analysis of all regional banks and credit unions in the United States (approx. 9,440 institutions.)
