Macquarie wins award for Australia’s Best Bank
It’s that time of year again, where our expert team of judges analyse data to find the top Australian banking providers. And Macquarie Bank has been crowned Australia’s Best Bank in the 2022 Mozo Experts Choice Best Banking Awards.
To determine which financial institutions are worthy of being crowned a Mozo Experts Choice Award winner, our team of judges looked at 90 banking providers to analyse and assess their performance based on their individual products (3,141 in total!) to determine who comes out on top.
Macquarie is truly a force to reckon with after knocking out the 2020 and 2021 winner ING from its top spot.
This Sydney-based bank has had lots of attention lately, winning an award for its home loans earlier this year and nabbing four awards for its deposit products! Macquarie also offers competitive credit cards, personal loans, term deposits and savings accounts.
