Affinity Federal Credit Union Ranked Top Credit Union in New Jersey by Forbes

Basking Ridge, N.J. (August 14, 2018) – Affinity Federal Credit Union announced today its ranking as the best credit union in New Jersey by Forbes. Forbes, in partnership with market research firm Statista, compiled a list of Best-In-State Banks and Credit Unions throughout the country. Affinity locations now span 17 branches in New Jersey, with three new branches in New York and two in Connecticut.

Statista surveyed more than 25,000 U.S. customers on their current and former banking relationships. The banks and credit unions were rated on overall recommendations and satisfaction, as well as five subdimensions: trust, terms and conditions, branch services, digital services and financial advice. Affinity received a score of 83.32 out of a maximum 100 points.

“Acknowledgement from Forbes for our work in New Jersey is a great accomplishment,”” said John T. Fenton, CEO of Affinity Federal Credit Union. “Knowing that consumer opinion shaped the ranking is even more rewarding, and shows we are making a difference in the lives of the members we serve. Now that we also have branches in New York and Connecticut, we look forward to making a powerful impact throughout the tri-state area.”
