Stockport’s Vernon Building Society has been awarded ‘Best Savings Provider’ at the 2017 British Bank Awards, beating all national banks and building societies to the top spot.
The Vernon Building Society is a local, independent building society, based in Stockport. The Society was founded in 1924 and is the only local building society serving the Stockport and East Cheshire area.
Ian Keeling, Director of Sales & Marketing at the Vernon, said “Our members have always been at the very heart of everything we do. This culture makes us unique from the larger financial institutions – it is very difficult to replicate.”
“The current economic environment is challenging for savers at the moment, with increasing inflation and low interest rates. We try to protect our savers as much as we can.”
“In addition to competitive interest rates, we offer a range of well-designed products, the convenience of a local branch network and excellent customer service.”
The Vernon has a 5-star rating on smartmoneypeople.com – an independent and trusted source of financial service consumer reviews.
“Our personal approach extends beyond savings accounts too – our manual mortgage underwriting process means that we have the capability to assess complex situations and take a common sense approach” said Ian.
“We always put our member’s interest first and this approach seems to work as evidenced by this latest award.”
The Vernon Building Society has built a strong reputation as a trusted provider of financial products to the local population with branches in Stockport, Edgeley, Marple, Bramhall, Hazel Grove, Poynton and Reddish.
