ANZ tops bank customer service ratings
ANZ has been named as the bank with the most satisfied customers by financial services research firm Canstar Cannex.
ANZ, which was also named as the top bank in New South Wales and South Australia, narrowly tipped out the much smaller Bendigo Bank, which was named as the top bank in Queensland and Victoria.
Cannex surveyed more than 5000 on general customer satisfaction as well as specific questions about service at a branch, call centre and internet banking levels. Banks were assessed on friendliness, products and pricing and problem solving.
Cannex's head of research, Steve Mickenbecker, says the biggest gripes related to fees and charges.
