The British Bank Awards celebrates the best products, hottest innovations and most trusted financial brands within the industry.

Now in their 5th year, the British Bank Awards results are expected to reach over five million consumers in 2019.

Unlike most banking awards, the British Bank Awards are voted for through a customer-led vote – not a voting panel.

Having become the most widely reported banking awards in the UK, the British Bank Awards truly are the Oscars of the banking world. By sharing your honest feedback and casting a vote, you’ll help to empower customers and bring greater transparency to the world of finance. Plus, one lucky voter will win £1,000.
