Friday is always a perfect time to receive good news and we’ve some news that we’re pretty pleased about; we’ve won Smart Investor’s Blue Ribbon Awards for ‘2013 Savings Institution of the Year’. We also won 2013 Best Long Term Deposit!
Our goal is to help Aussies be smarter with their savings, so the awards mean that we’re on the right track! What makes this extra special is that it’s second year in a row that we’ve won the Savings Institution award and the fourth time we’ve won the Best Long Term Deposit award.
We’re passionate about our mission to help Australians make the most of their savings. And we know from our research that far too many of us are leaving money lying idle in every day transaction accounts that don’t earn a cent of interest. And to make matters worse, we often think our transaction account is a savings account because of the fancy names that some banks use when dreaming up product names. Pressing the ‘savings’ button when you’re paying for stuff at the checkout only reinforces the false notion that you have a savings account. When you add it all up Aussies are losing out on billions of dollars in lost interest. It’s no wonder that the four major banks will earn over $20billion in net profit in one year.. We’re not about telling you not to buy that coffee in the morning that kick starts your day. There are easier ways to get savvy with your savings. It’s never too late to start a savings plan and steal back your dreams.
Smart Investor’s Blue Ribbon Awards are announced in the Australian Financial Review and given to Australia’s highest quality, best cost products. They’re chosen by the savvy team at Smart Investor magazine and the research houses Morningstar, Infochoice, Lonsec and Rice Warner Actuaries….so they’re pretty prestigious.
Thank you everyone, especially our customers!
