After 10 weeks of voting by over 50,000 consumers for their favourite banking providers, we’re delighted to share the finalists of our British Bank Awards 2021.
Jacqueline Dewey, Chief Executive of Smart Money People, said: “The British Bank Awards are in their seventh year, and 2021 is shaping up to be our best yet, with record voting numbers and a great variety of firms participating. It’s great to see so many consumers who feel passionate about the service and products they receive and the feedback we’re getting from consumers who vote is incredibly encouraging.
We’ve been particularly pleased with two of our new categories for 2021 – best children’s financial provider and best ethical financial provider, which have seen some fantastic engagement with consumers and brands. With three more weeks of voting remaining, there’s still much to play for with our finalists.”
We now move into the finalist voting phase, so make sure to cast your vote for your favourite finalist, if you haven’t already.
If you work in financial services, you can continue to vote for our industry voted partner-specific awards here.
And don’t forget, you can continue to vote for your favourite online financial influencer right up until 19th April and, voting for your top personal finance journalist, will also close on 19th April.
