Metro Bank, the revolutionary high street bank, was last night named ‘Bank of the Year’ at the CityAM Awards 2016, for the second time.
The bank, which prides itself on offering customers the very best in service and convenience, beat off competition from a range of retail, private and digital banks to be awarded the top prize. It was praised by the independent panel of leading business and financial experts for its highly awaited listing on the London Stock Exchange earlier this year, as well as its fast growth and success.
Craig Donaldson, CEO at Metro Bank said: “It’s a real honour to be recognised by CityAM as the ‘Bank of the Year’. Just over six years on from our launch we remain as committed as ever to creating a true banking alternative by providing exceptional levels of service and convenience. Our thanks must go to our growing number of customers who continue to vote with their feet and support us as we revolutionise British banking.”
Previously named CityAM ‘Bank of the Year’ in 2013, Metro Bank now has more than 848,000 customer accounts, over 2,500 colleague and 44 stores across London and the South East. Last month it reported its third quarter results, which saw strong growth across both its lending and deposits, with year-on-year increases of 73% and 66% respectively, as well as announcing its first underlying profit before tax.
