Another strong year for building societies at the Moneyfacts Awards 2018

Five hundred guests gathered at the iconic Pavilion at the Tower of London to celebrate the Moneyfacts Awards 2018. Building societies had another fruitful year, taking home six awards, including Best Remortgage Provider, Best First-Time Buyer Mortgage Provider, Regional Lending Provider of the Year, Best Online Mortgage Provider, Best Building Society Savings Provider and Best Building Society Mortgage Provider.

Our sector was shortlisted in half of the 30 categories, highly commended in another six, and commended for a further seven awards.

Lee Tillcock, Editor of Moneyfacts, said:

“Having continued to display value, choice and innovation, all the finalists and winners at this year's Moneyfacts Awards should be proud of their achievements.

“While the last year has proven somewhat unpredictable on a political level, it has created opportunities for all those involved in the personal finance market. Providing the products and services that have best met the needs of consumers, the Moneyfacts Awards showcase providers and brokers who have consistently demonstrated a commitment to quality and excellence that will serve them well during the next year.”

The Moneyfacts Awards aims to recognise and reward organisations that genuinely support the personal finance sector. Rigorous product monitoring is carried out throughout the preceding year to determine the winners, and the intermediary community is also consulted for feedback.
