Luxembourg/Munsbach, 5th July 2019 – Advanzia Bank has emerged as a winner at this year's “Finanz-Awards" within the “Investment" product category. The Advanziakonto was judged “Best Deposit Account for Existing Customers" and an outstanding savings product thanks to its above-average interest rates. Eleven providers of deposit accounts were tested throughout Germany.
"Our approach of offering a simple and transparent product with an attractive interest rate and fast and competent service has proven its worth," says Pieter Verhoeckx, Chief Customer Relations Officer at Advanzia Bank. "The Advanziakonto offers not only new customers, but also our existing customers, permanently high interest rates and is therefore a very attractive and flexible investment. We see this award as an incentive to continue offering our customers the best conditions and first-class service in the future".
The award is based on independent research conducted by the German Institute for Service Quality (DISQ) in cooperation with FMH-Finanzberatung (financial consultants) and the news channel n-tv. In addition to evaluating the product conditions, the best providers were also subjected to comprehensive service tests. Since 2013, the Finanz-Awards have been providing greater transparency for consumers in the financial sector.
