Mozo Experts Choice Awards 2019

What are the Mozo Experts Choice Awards?

For six years now, the Mozo Experts Choice Awards have revealed the best banking options, from top notch home loans, to incredible credit cards and superb savings accounts. And once a year, we bring all of this analysis together to crown Australia’s Best Banking providers.

In 2019, we identified Australia’s best value bank, small bank, credit union, customer-owned bank and major bank, so that no matter what you’re after, there’s a bank to suit you.

“These winners are at the top of their game when it comes to offering great value financial products. Across a heap of different product categories and all throughout the year, the winners have proven again and again that they deserve the title of Australia’s Best,” said Mozo Experts Choice Award judge, Peter Marshall.

To find the Australia’s Best Banking winners, our team of expert analysts first shortlisted providers which had received at least five Mozo Experts Choice Awards in the last 12 months. But the analysis didn’t end there - eligible banking institutions were than ranked by their best product in each category, and assessed to ensure they weren’t missing products in any vital categories. Finally, we looked at the current offers from the leading providers to ensure they were still offering great value.

“It’s not easy to pick Australia’s best banks, and there was a rigorous process to pick the award winners. We’re satisfied that we’ve identified the banking options that offer the best overall value to Australians,” said Marshall.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the judging criteria?

To be shortlisted for an Australia’s Best Award, a banking provider needed to have won at least five Mozo Experts Choice Awards for individual products since July 2018. Providers were then assessed on overall performance across every banking award, and ranked according to how often their products ranked better than the others.

Australia’s Best are the providers who appear near the top of our lists of best value products, most often. They don’t need to offer products in every individual category, they just need to be really good at what they do.

 

Where does Mozo get all the interest rates and fees and product details from?
