What are the Mozo Experts Choice Awards?

Now in their sixth year, the Mozo Experts Choice Awards are here to showcase the deposit products that our experts have determined to offer the best value to Australians.

For the 2019 kids savings accounts awards, Mozo’s money experts compared 47 kids savings accounts from 38 financial institutions based on data contained in Mozo’s product database.

Keeping kids motivated to save is an important part of their financial education, so along with a range of other features, we looked at accounts designed to make saving easy and fun for kids.

For details on how we crunched the numbers and determined the award winners see our methodology report.

There were 30 kids savings accounts in the Mozo database offering an ongoing bonus rate and our experts whittled them down to just the top 3 by looking at the generosity of the interest rates on offer.

What was the judging criteria for these awards?

The Mozo Experts Choice Awards recognise products that deliver exceptional value or benefits to Australian consumers. Our experts base their decision on hard-nosed calculations of value to the consumer, using Mozo’s extensive product database and research capacity. Providers don’t pay to be in the running and we don’t play favourites.

Our award methodology report is available for you to read which includes criteria for each award category and lists all providers considered for awards.

How many products were reviewed by Mozo’s experts for the Awards?

For the 2019 deposits awards, Mozo compared 455 personal banking products, including 161 savings accounts, 107 bank accounts and 62 term deposits, plus 137 business banking products and 88 SMSF products.

To better help Australians narrow down their choice there are several Mozo Experts Choice Awards Categories. Our full methodology report lists out the criteria for each awards category and provides a list of all providers compared for awards consideration.
