2022 Moneynet Awards – Winners announced

6 Jan, 2022

Below, are the results of the 12th annual Moneynet PersonalFinance Awards (2022) celebrating the best providers and products from the last twelve months.

The tough economic back drop and ongoing covid pandemic made it another challenging year for providers and customer alike, but the competition between banks, building societies, insurers, fintechs and credit card companies remained fierce throughout a turbulent 2021.

The best providers adapted to changing market conditions and outperformed their peers, delivering excellent choice, value, and innovative solutions for their customers.

There have been many eye catching best buy deals and some innovative new product developments, helping people to get more from their finances, and Moneynet is proud to recognise the top players for their outstanding achievements.
