Pinnacle Financial Partners is one of the best and top performing banks in America, according to two separate lists released in 2022. The firm recently earned the No. 14 spot on the S&P Global Market Intelligence performance ranking. Earlier in the year, Forbes published a list of America’s Best Banks, with Pinnacle at No. 22. Both rankings are by far the highest of any other banks headquartered in Tennessee and higher than any locally based banks in North Carolina or South Carolina.
