On June 7th, 2016, the Zins-Award took place where 39 winners from eleven product categories were honored as some of the best companies in the financial industry. Behind it for the fourth time were n-tv (check out the video about the event here), FMH Finanzberatung, and the German Institute for Service Quality. The aim of the award is to help consumers navigate and choose the best from numerous financial deals. The Zins-Award guarantees transparency in the financial sector, and thus, helps customers with their financial decision-making.
Over a period of six months, FMH determined the conditions in four product areas including investment, consumer finance, mortgage lending, and checking accounts. In the consideration for the winners participated not only banks, but also insurers and intermediaries. In addition, the best companies underwent a comprehensive service test which took into account communication and service contacts.
Some of the winners included giants such as Commerzbank, ING-Diba, Interhyp and ADAC financial services. In the investment area, our venture Savedo was honored amongst companies such as DKB Deutsche Kreditbank, Sberbank Direct, and Renault Bank direkt. A special prize for Fintech companies was received by FinLeap’s venture FinReach for their innovative account switching service.
