Moneynet Awards 2018

Moneynet is proud to announce the results of its eighth annual Personal Finance Awards recognising the top providers and products from the last twelve months.

There has been healthy competition between the banks, building societies, insurers and credit card companies during the last year, but some have outperformed their peers and delivered excellent choice, value and innovative solutions for the UK customer.

Despite continued low interest rates and added uncertainty due to Brexit negotiations, there have been some stand out best buy products and we are again pleased to recognise the top providers and innovators for their achievements.

So to our winners!…
