Bankwest is excited to announce for the second year running that it has been awarded the prestigious Financial Review Smart Investor Bank of the Year 2011, an award which recognises excellence in financial services across the country.

Bankwest’s focus this year has been on ensuring we meet needs of our customers, delivering the product and service innovations necessary so that we can continue to exceed customer expectations.

Some examples of how we have provided innovations this year include:

  • Our new Express Stores – a new, innovative concept that brings banking to customers in a more user-friendly accessible way. Our 100 strong store network in WA is also being refreshed and we’ll be changing the face of banking when we open our flagship store in Perth in the near future
  • The strength of our entire product range, including products such as our Rate-Cutter and Super Start home loans, our Lite MasterCard and our Zero transaction account
  • Being part of Australia’s biggest bank ATM network of 4,000 ATMs
  • Our new internationally awarded website -  inspired by online shopping sites and some of the world’s best search engines, it enables consumers to navigate the site with ease

We are proud to offer consumers a real alternative in terms of their banking needs with a strong West Australian heritage and a growing East Coast presence.

All of us at Bankwest are committed to continue delivering happy banking to Australians. For more information, please take a look at the Smart Investor press release.
