Now in their sixth year, the British Bank Awards aim to find the best products, top innovation and most trusted financial brands. The awards are run by Smart Money People and are 100% voted for by customers.

Michael Fotis, Founder ofSmart Money People, said: “The British Bank Awards aim to discover and recognise the firms that are working hard to deliver great products and services for their customers. With the financial services industry becoming more competitive every day, all finalists should be very proud of the great feedback they’ve received from their customers.”

Triodos Bank UK launched a personal current account in 2017 - the most sustainable personal current account ever brought to the UK market. As a result the bank has a full product offering ranging from everyday banking and savings to socially responsible investing and three different ISA products.

Bevis Watts, CEO, Triodos Bank UK, said: “There is a growing demand for financial institutions to be transparent and accountable. As public pressure to act against the environmental and climate emergency has grown throughout 2019, and shows signs of continuing to grow in 2020, our mission to use money to support positive change has never felt more relevant.”

“For 25 years we have chosen to focus on finance that will change the world for the better. Triodos demonstrates that everyday banking is possible in line with your values. People are no longer content to hand over their money to be used for purposes that are not aligned with their personal values. Now, the more people that join us, the more positive impact we can make.”

Triodos is a certified B Corporation and rated Best Buy in the Ethical Consumer finance guides. Winners will be announced on 12 March 2020.
