SAVINGS CHAMPION ANNUAL AWARDS

2017 Winners Announced

SavingsChampion.co.uk is proud to announce the winners and highly commended providers for its fourth annual savings awards.

It has been an extremely tough year for savers, with record low interest rates and a whole host of accounts disappearing from our best buy tables. This year has also seen the Bank of England base rate cut, the first change in over seven years and not the one that savers were hoping for.

As a result, we have seen interest rates fall almost across the board, though it should be said that some providers have treated savers more fairly than others.

These awards recognise those providers that have distinguished themselves in trying times and supported savers with competitive interest rates and fewer rate cuts. We have also recognised innovation and newly launched banks and looked at customer service and the application process in more detail, drawing on our own experience, gained from our Concierge Service.

What makes our awards different?

Our awards not only recognise those banks and building societies that offer consistently competitive rates for new savers, but, as importantly, those that support their existing savers and offer high levels of customer service.

SavingsChampion.co.uk is one of the few places savers can go to for truly independent, whole of market savings advice. With a wealth of knowledge, experience and unrivalled research, we are the experts in our field.

All awards are independently chosen and the judging process for the awards is comprehensive and detailed, looking back every week over the last year to find the providers that have remained consistent in each category. 

The winners and highly commended providers of the 2017 SavingsChampion.co.uk awards are listed below.
