Bank of the Year 2005
Welcome to Money magazine's inaugural Consumer Finance Awards, including the coveted Bank of the Year 2005 gong.
All the winners, and in particular the five major winners - ANZ Savings and Loans CU (SA), IMB Ltd, Yes Home Loans and GE Money, stay well ahead of the pack when it comes to catering for everyday money needs.
Money partnered with research house CANNEX, Australia's leading banking industry research group, which looked at hundreds of institutions and combed through thousands of products.
From conception to awards nights, the process for Bank of the Year 2005 took close to four months.
"Competition is alive and well in the consumer finance industry," says CANNEX managing director Andrew Willink.
"And awards like these drive the institutions to do even better, which is good news for all of us who use their products."
