As part of a regulatory requirement, an independent survey was conducted to ask approximately 500 customers of each of the 11 largest personal current account providers if they would recommend their provider to friends and family. The results represent the view of customers who took part in the survey.

These results are from an independent survey carried out between July 2021 and June 2022 by IPSOS as part of a regulatory requirement.

Starling Bank has published this information at the request of the Competition and Markets Authority so you can compare the quality of service from personal current account providers. In providing this information, we are not giving you any advice or making any recommendation to you and we can only give you information about our own products and services.

Customers with personal current accounts were asked how likely they would be to recommend their provider, their provider’s online and mobile banking services, services in branches and overdraft services to friends and family.

The results show the proportion of customers of each provider, among those who took part in the survey, who said they were ‘extremely likely’ or ‘very likely’ to recommend each service.
