The Forbes Best Banks in America ranking is based on metrics that include return on average tangible common equity, return on average assets, net interest margin, efficiency ratio, net charge-offs as a percentage of total loans and operating revenue growth. Forbes also factored in nonperforming assets as a percent of assets, CET1 ratio, risk-based capital ratio and reserves as a percent of nonperforming assets.
