You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Banks

HSBC

1 Saddler St, Durham DH1 3NR, UK – 0345 740 4404

The bank is larger than the one in Windsor, Surrey. And they have a Premier section, which Windsor does not. So their customer service was shockingly sub par. I was really surprised that the Premier officer on the day did not want to help me even though I am a premier client. I tried to approach their premier guy, but he was on a mission to avoid contact. This is very annoying as HSBC tries very hard to sell its premium brand?! I was really confused. The reason I gave it a 3 star was because the young woman at the counter was the best part of the experience. She deserved a 5 star rating while her premier colleague and the older and less than helpful gentleman at the counter, who was dismissive and not very customer orientated, deserved s zero!. Ms. Kahlbom, brava. And thank you.

With the earlier feedbacks and overall scroe of 1.5 in mind, I was bit skeptic while visiting this branch..but within few minutes it was over. Rapid , methodical and very helpful service, I'd like to mention David's Name.

Atom Bank

The Rivergreen Centre, Durham DH1 5TS, UK – 0333 399 0050

Overall a good starter experience with Atom Bank. Applied for a 1yr fixed savers account and although I had a few issues with the app at first, it worked fine the next day once the initial rush had died down. The rate was not great (as is to be expected given the state of the economy) but was still the best I could find, so full marks there. Where they do lose a star however is for their security. They insist that you set up three different types of login, two of which in my opinion are pretty insecure. The fact that these methods HAVE to be setup means that even if I don't use them myself, they are there for potential fraudsters to exploit. Very disappointing for such a new, tech based bank.

I have just opened a three year bond, no problems this bank came up with best interest rates recommended by Martin Lewis on his showed, government backed so this was the one for me.
