Award recognizes U.S companies that exemplify three public pillars of trust

GREENVILLE, SC / ACCESSWIRE / March 30, 2023 / For the second year in a row, World Finance has been named to Newsweek's Most Trustworthy Companies in America 2023 list presented by Newsweek and Statista Inc., the world-leading statistics portal and industry ranking provider.

"It is an honor to be recognized as one of Newsweek's Most Trustworthy Companies in America. As a financial company serving the often under-served and disserved, it's crucial that our customers and employees trust us to treat them fairly and live out our values. Annually, we'll help around 225,000 customers move into near-prime or prime credit and increase their financial options, and it all begins with us trusting and respecting each other. As a South Carolina native, I'm especially honored to lead a South Carolina-based company recognized by Newsweek for the second year in a row," says Chad Prashad, CEO of World Acceptance, parent company of World Finance.

Most Trustworthy Companies in America 2023 were identified in an independent survey based on a vast sample of approximately 25,000 U.S. residents who rated companies they know in terms of on all three touchpoints of trust.

All companies headquartered in the U.S. with a revenue over $500 million were considered in the study and the Most Trustworthy Companies across 23 industries were chosen based on a holistic approach to evaluating trust.
