You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Banks

Bank of Ireland (UK) Plc

Bow Bells House, 1 Bread St, London EC4M 9BE, UK – 020 7236 2000

Always been a fabulous bank even though I've had no branch for 3 years, being in England. They own the Post Office so it can offer most branch services, and the 365 online is fabulous, though adding payees or changing your phone number is a bit draconian.

Lloyds Bank PLC

3-5 Whitechapel Rd, London E1 1DU, UK – 0845 300 0000

Very friendly staff and quick service!

The staffs here are in average friendly. I couldn't remember his name but I think he's the manager, he was so friendly even I didn't open my account by him. I had several issues just after open my account so i visit here quite many times, and he always came up to me and ask what's the problem and helped me to solve it. Sometimes some of staffs are being lazy but it was okay for me.
