Make sure that your customers are getting the products they need and the service they deserve

Research carried out by Huntswood, in conjunction with the University of Surrey and the University of Exeter, determined that 71% of customers think independent new business checking would ensure that the advice, products or services they receive are provided in their best interest.

New business checking is valued greatly by customers.
