Press Release


Southern Bank named “Best Small Bank in Missouri” by Newsweek, powered by LendingTree.

Wow, what an honor. Out of more than 2,500 FDIC-insured financial institutions, Southern Bank was named the Best Small Bank in Missouri according to a joint consultation by Newsweek and Lending Tree.

Lending Tree culled candidates and applied filters to narrow the pool of more than 2,500 institutions into 18 categories. The ‘best banks’ were selected based on 55 individual factors and ranked on a scoring system developed by Newsweek.

Some determining factors included various fees, current and historical interest rates, account terms, customer service features, and mobile app scores.
