Heritage scores highest customer satisfaction rating in Queensland.

Heritage Building Society has out-performed all other banking institutions in Queensland to score the highest customer satisfaction rating in the latest Roy Morgan Research Consumer Finance Survey.

Heritage scored an 88% customer satisfaction rating – higher than any other bank, building society or credit union in Queensland - for the six months to April.

The Society easily out-performed the four big banks, which had a combined satisfaction rating of just 72.8%.

Heritage’s performance was even better for those customers who considered the Society their main financial institution, with a satisfaction rating of 90.4%.

CEO John Minz said the survey results clearly demonstrated that members found greater satisfaction from choosing to do their banking with Heritage.

“The difference is simple – Heritage continues to put People first in everything we do, and our members see benefits in the quality of service and products we deliver to them,” he said.

“Heritage is a mutual, which means we exist to serve our members. We don’t have to pay dividends to shareholders like the big banks, so we give our profits back to members by offering a low-cost, service-orientated banking experience.

“We go the extra mile for our members, with competitive deposit and lending rates, a great range of products, fairer fees and a People first philosophy.”

The benefits of that philosophy were also recognised on a national scale this month, with Heritage taking out the Building Society of the Year award at the 20th Annual Australian Banking & Finance Awards held in Sydney.

It was seventh time in the last nine years that Heritage has taken out the title. John Minz was also a finalist in the Financial Services Executive of the Year category in those awards.
