As well as Best British Bank, Monzo also took the Best Business Banking Provider and Best Banking App awards away from Starling.
The winner was chosen by 81,000 votes cast by customers for this year’s awards.
The British Bank Awards are run by Smart Money People, who offer a review platform focused purely on the financial sector and provide customer insight to a wide range of organizations.
Founded in 2014, Smart Money People’s mission is to help the financially active make more successful choices, and the British Bank Awards help to achieve this mission by acting as a symbol of excellence to both consumers and industry peers.
“We’re delighted to be voted by customers as the Best Bank in Britain – further recognition of our mission to transform banking and make money work for everyone,” said Monzo’s chief operating officer Sujata Bhatia.
“These awards are testament to the brilliant people we have at Monzo, who live our mission and values daily and ensure customers are at the heart of everything we do.”
“With the awards 100 per cent voted for by consumers and no judging panel, the British Bank Awards truly reflect the best of the UK banking industry, and the commitment and engagement these organisations have from their customers,” said Jacqueline Dewey, CEO of Smart Money People which runs the awards.
“This year our winners range from the newest firms in the market to well-established household names, illustrating the breadth and depth of the UK’s financial services market across many sectors. Both the finalists and the winners of the awards this year should be proud of their achievements.”
