TESCO BANK WIN 2014 AWARD

Tesco Bank is the winner of the Scottish Financial Services Awards 2014, sponsored by EY.  The company was recognised for launching their current account and consolidating their position as a leading bank in the UK, employing 4000 people, most of these in Scotland.

Tesco is the first bank to win the award since it was established in 2010 and fought of stiff competition from four other nominees – Ashurst, Aberdeen Asset Management, the Library of Mistakes and Hymans Robertson.

Receiving the award at SFE’s annual dinner in Glasgow last night, Benny Higgins, Chief Executive of Tesco Bank said:

Tesco Bank set out in late 2008 to be a bank that served customers differently. A bank that was different from established banks. A bank that focused on the importance of transparency, enduring values, and rewarding loyalty. Today we serve 6 million customers, and their well-being is our highest priority. This award reflects the exceptional progress that has been achieved through the hard work of all our colleagues at the bank.”

Presenting the award, Peter Wallace, head of financial services at EY Scotland said:

“The award is testament to the phenomenal growth and success enjoyed by Tesco Bank over the past few years and an indication of the impact new entrants are making on the retail banking market. Tesco Bank exemplifies the innovative spirit required to shake-up the status quo and its ambitious investment strategy should see it solidify its leading position among the sector’s bright new providers.”
