Innovative bank nominated for consumer credit award


Innovative bank Tandem has been nominated as the Best Newcomer at the Consumer Credit Awards 2018.

The winners will be chosen by UK consumers and will be announced at the awards evening on the 12th of July in London.

The awards recognise banks that put the customer at the heart of the industry and provide a showcase for consumers looking for the best credit providers.

“We are delighted with the nomination for best newcomer,” said Tandem CEO Ricky Knox.

“With the help of our co-founders we are committed to creating products that make the lives of our customers easier and we are proud to be commended for it.”

The Best Newcomer award recognises a bank that has changed the nature of banking and has provided a reliable service to its customers since it was introduced in 2014.

Tandem’s app, Fixed Saver Accounts and its Travel Cashback Credit Card are all products that aim to be transparent, simple to use, and are designed so that people spend less time worrying about money and more time enjoying life.

“When we develop new products we want them to suit the lifestyle and values of our customers, supporting them to be responsible with money,” said Knox.

“We hope this nomination means we have succeeded!”

Voting is open now and the winner will be decided completely by UK consumers. Between the 2nd of April and the 10th of June consumers can vote for a firm of their choice and on the 11th of June a list of finalists will be announced before voting reopens. The winners will be announced on the 12th of July.

The Consumer Credit Awards are run by the Smart Money People, which is the UK’s leading independent review platform for financial services.

The aim of the organisation is to find the best providers and they work with providers to deliver market leading customer insight.
