At Santander we are driven to do better, and that means making banking better for our customers. So we are proud that our performance has been rewarded with some trophies of our own:

Santander UK is named Personal Finance Provider of the Year

For the third year running Santander UK has picked up three top awards at the Moneyfacts Awards 2012 which took place on Friday 25 May at London's Grosvenor Square Marriott Hotel, including the prestigious Personal Finance Provider of the Year for the third consecutive year - the first time in the awards' history that any financial provider has collected this award three years in a row.

Winner of Best Current Account Provider

The Santander UK also collected the award for Best Current Account Provider, demonstrating Santander's great value current accounts. The recent launch of the 123 Current Account has proved to be very popular as it gives customers up to 3% cashback on utilities, council tax and communications bills paid by direct debit and up to 3% AER (variable) interest on credit balances up to 20,000. This is complemented by the 123 Credit Card, which pays cashback on purchases: 1% at supermarkets, 2% at department stores and 3% at petrol stations.

Winner of Best Cash ISA Provider

Santander has a strong history of helping people to save, especially in cash ISAs where customers earn interest without paying tax. The recently launched 2 year fixed rate Major ISA is an example of a winning product, which has been so popular that we have extended the offer beyond the 'ISA season' period.

Reza Attar-Zadeh, retail director at Santander, said: 'These wins are a fantastic testament to the hard work and efforts of everyone at Santander to develop and deliver top quality products to all our customers in the UK. We strive to develop value-adding products with our customers' needs in mind and involve our customers in this process to help us get it right. We're really proud of our achievements and successes, and proud to be such a strong and integral part of the UK financial system.'

In addition to this hat-trick at the Moneyfacts Awards, Santander is also proud to win the Best New Credit Card at the Card & Payments Trailblazer Awards 2012 for the 123 Credit Card.
