“The British Bank Awards are now in their eighth year, and 2022 looks set to be another great year for the awards, with fantastic voting numbers and a wide variety of firms participating. The consumer feedback we’ve seen from the votes is extremely encouraging, and it's great to see so many consumers taking the time to vote for their favourite banking products and services.
