CAF Bank beats the big banks to scoop prestigious accolade

2 July 2014

In March, CAF Bank fought off strong competition to be ‘Highly Commended’ for ‘Best Charity Account Provider’ in the Business Moneyfacts Awards 2014, the largest business finance awards in the UK.

Second only to Lloyds Bank, CAF Bank was recognised ahead of Natwest, Santander, The Co-operative Bank, Triodos Bank (commended), Unity Trust Bank and Cater Allen Private Bank. Nominees went through rigorous product monitoring throughout the preceding year and the broker community was also consulted for feedback.

Commenting on the award, CAF Bank CEO, Peter Ostacchini, said “Receiving this is a proud moment for us. We are dedicated to offering products and services that are exclusively designed for the charity sector and this award confirms that we are hitting the right spot.”

But we are not complacent about receiving this recognition and will continue to enhance our offering, so that we continue to meet the needs of our customers in the future. Charities appreciate our depth of understanding of the sector and it is therefore crucial for us to maintain this insight.”

CAF Bank is the bank for charities and not-for-profit organisations. Owned by a charity, it provides traditional, service-led banking, researched and designed exclusively for charities. Whether you want a current account for transactional banking, a savings account, or access to a wide range of flexible loans, CAF Bank can help.
