Used to be a great bank

I've banked with BOQ specialist bank in Sydney for decades. When they were owned and operated as Investec they were excellent, efficient and responsive to customer requirements. However over the past couple of years they seem to have no management control. Simple maturing fixed deposit transfer requests are ignored or misplaced. The Manager dealing with my accounts for multiple years advised last month he was too busy to handle my account and instead of allocating another relationship manager suggested that I should send future requests to their client service department. Sadly, upon requesting transfer of the next maturing deposit it took several international phone calls and 3 secure messages before anyone paid attention and resolved their internal issues. It seems the bank is in a shambles -

Reasonable customer service

I like to be able to speak to someone in the local branch. You used to be able to do this, but now they direct you to a 1300 number which I detest. Press this if you want this, press that if you want that!! Time waster.

Shop in your own backyard.

You get better service from a Independent Owner operator Bank such as BOQ . Decisions can be made on the spot and personal service makes your day.
