Bevis Watts, chief executive of Triodos Bank UK, said: “It really says something that these awards are voted for by customers. We are extremely grateful for their support. Sustainability is central to Triodos Bank’s mission and winning this award recognises how we’ve built our products and services with a focus on these values over the past 25 years.”
“To also be voted ‘Best Investment Provider’ this year demonstrates that our impact investment funds and crowdfunding offers stand out for allowing investors to put their money into companies making positive change happen, often in sectors that are key to solving some of the world’s most pressing issues.”
