Voting in the British Bank Awards 2022 is open! VOTE HERE


Now in their eighth year the British Bank Awards, run by Smart Money People, are widely recognised as the ultimate symbol of excellence across the banking industry, as determined by those who matter most, the customer.

Over a 13 week voting period that saw over 90,000 votes cast in 2021, the awards create fierce competition among providers to be crowned winner and be able to demonstrate to consumers, both existing and prospective, their outstanding credentials.

Since their launch the awards have been covered in an array of publications targeted at both trade and consumer including The Fintech Times, Daily Mail, The Guardian, Sunday Express, Daily Mirror and AltFi.

Award categories span the vast range of the banking sector, with specific categories for innovation, new entrants to the market, ethical providers, influencers, and many more. There’s also a series of categories targeted at partners who provide services to the banking industry. For our full list of categories visit our ‘take part’ page.
