Monzo tops CMA banking satisfaction survey results
Today marks the 11th publication over 6 years of the services quality league table of personal and business current account providers. The survey was established as part of the Retail Banking Order – a set of reforms put in place by the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) following its retail banking market investigation in 2016.
The latest independent results from the large-scale survey ranking the service quality of personal and business current account providers in Great Britain and Northern Ireland are available via the links below:
Personal and small business current account holders were asked how likely they would be to recommend their provider to a friend, relative or other business. The survey also covered the quality of online and mobile provision, branch and overdraft services and, for small businesses, the quality of the relationship management they receive.
The results show customers how their bank is ranked on quality of service and make it easier for people to compare offers. They also promote competition between providers, resulting in better experiences for all account holders. Customers who find another bank offering a better deal can use the Current Account Switch Service to help make the process of switching much simpler. This free service is available to anyone with a personal or business current account in the UK.

Adam Land, Senior Director of Remedies, Business and Financial Analysis at the CMA, said: “How banks treat their customers can make an enormous difference to their daily lives, particularly when people and small businesses are feeling the pinch.
“These results make it easy for people to see in branch, or at the click of a button, which banks are listening to their customers and meeting their needs. This puts pressure on poorly performing banks to raise their game. If the service and quality offered by your bank has been below par, then you may well be able to do better by making a switch.”
