Suffolk Building Society is proud to announce that it has been named the Best Building Society at the British Bank Awards as well as being Highly Commended in the Best Specialist Mortgage Provider category. The awards were hosted by Smart Money People, a consumer review website dedicated to the financial services industry.
The ceremony was held at the Sheraton Grand London, Park Lane on Thursday 5 May 2022, to a packed-out audience made up of the best and brightest providers of financial services in the UK.
Unlike other awards that are decided by an expert panel, these awards are widely recognised as the ultimate symbol of excellence across the banking industry, because they are determined by those who matter most: the customer. Customers were asked to leave a rating out of five and a review for their favourite product provider, as well as specific ratings for customer service and value for money amongst other criteria.
Richard Norrington, Chief Executive of Suffolk Building Society said: “As a proudly independent building society, we are thrilled to have won these awards and it is even more significant because it is voted for by our members. We see so many of our members at our AGM every year when they give us their positive feedback but this is a real pat on the back that we’re delivering on our promise to provide a safe home for their savings, and safe homes for our communities. It is a real testament to the hard work and commitment of our staff who surpass customer expectations week in, week out.
“That said, we’re not resting on our laurels and already have some major plans in place to ensure we are as relevant to our communities tomorrow as we are today.”
