The British bank awards, run by Smart Money People, are back for their tenth year. Voting opens today, Monday 8 January 2024.

The awards are widely recognised as the ultimate symbol of excellence across the banking industry. Consumers decide the winners by leaving a review on Smart Money People, making the awards both unique and a true endorsement of satisfaction. In 2023 over 156,000 people had their say in the awards by leaving a review.

This year is the tenth anniversary of both Smart Money People and the British bank awards, so promises to be the most memorable event yet. The winners will be revealed on 9 May 2024 at the Landmark Hotel in London. A landmark hotel for a landmark occasion. We can’t wait!

Jacqueline Dewey, CEO of Smart Money People said, “After another year that’s seen challenges such as increased cost of living and rate rises, it’s been another busy year in the banking industry. Now in their tenth year, Smart Money People’s British bank awards recognise those that continue to go above and beyond. Thanks to the data we collect with our reviews, the awards are an endorsement of consumers’ experiences, and a symbol of the UK’s very best companies. After another busy 12 months in financial services, we can’t wait to see who consumers decide will win in 2024.”
