Capital One wins the Money Experience Bracket Challenge, named most innovative bank by Tearsheet readers

Out of a field of 64 of the top banks in the U.S., Capital One was named the most innovative bank by Tearsheet readers.

Our final four included 2 highly contested matchups that pitted Ally Bank against Capital One and US Bank against USAA. Capital One and USAA prevailed and then faced each other in the finals. Capital One was ultimately crowned the winner of the tournament.

Voters voted for banks according to three criteria:

  • What financial institutions are leading the digital transformation?
  • Who offers the best customer experience?
  • Who is developing the best tools and services for customers?
