  • Just what I wanted janjan3

    I have another account with Aldermore, so I already knew how efficient they are with good rates as well. So simple, to open accounts and very polite helpful staff.

  • Quick and Efficient Crystal48

    This is the second account that I have opened with Aldermore recently. I dealt with them by phone and by post which I found much easier than actually going into one of the high street banks. The staff were very courteous and very knowledgeably about their products. I hope to stay with Aldermore for years to come.

  • Seems good so far. Early days still Cassius

    Liked contact by mail which last account didn't do and pretty clear instructions. Bit early in a one year contract to be asked for a customer review though!

    I am a fairly new customer but I appreciate the lack of complex security data, and it is refreshing to talk to someone who gives replies in language which is easy to comprehend.

  • Exemplary business model operating smoothly Aviator01

    Opening several accounts after the nuisance of other huge banks performing poorly; Aldermore was a welcome change. Efficient, speedy in customer service, and preserving the highest security practices, it is difficult to praise this Bank too highly.

  • Customer is not right Sleeper

    I operate a number of accounts with Aldermore. The products are fine but it is really disappointing and very inconvenient that they do not accommodate customers' requirements. I want monthly interest to be paid to a particular savings account held at my main bankers, NOT paid to my current account #the account set up for direct debits - a system I do not use as I pay by cheque# so that the entries are mixed up with my day to day income and expenditure entries. Aldermore should be a little more flexible and meet customer expectations.

  • Exactly what I wanted and very easy to implement. Smallinvestor

    I searched on a number of websites for a good interest rate and found Aldemore - who were new to me. The process for application was very easy and the information clear and comprehensive. Documents arrived promptly. I hope the other end of the process is as straightforward.

  • Great savings scheme dave1

    Excellent service from time of first contacting Aldermore staff for additional information. Nothing was too much trouble for the person I spoke to, He was most obliging and gave me the information I had requested. Email & text advice notices were sent out until we received a letter of confirmation on our account- Well done and many thanks.

  • Prompt and buisnesslike Dannie

    With disgusting interest rates currently generally available, I was looking around for anything even a little bit above average and found Aldermore. Was a bit unsure at first with unfamiliar name but, with protection of savings,decided to have a go. Currently, more than happy.

  • Best there was. HardupHarry

    In this dire market where NO-ONE offers a decent return on savings, Aldermore is the best available. I liked: They are a British company. Not one of the big boys -yet. Government guaranteed - without this I wouldn't have opened the account. They have a good web site. The account was easy to open. A three year fix is (hopefully) long enough for interest rates to recover and short enough not to lose out if they climb in the interim. There are not many three year bonds on the market. This made Aldermore more attractive. Aldermore seem to have a go-ahead philosophy which appeals, on paper at least.

  • Most straightforward, efficient Bank I have ever dealt with jimbo2

    This is the second account that I have opened in the last few months - The first account opening for so easy and quick that I began to think that it might have been a "one- off" - but no - 2nd account opening was the same - brilliant - why don't you run courses for the management of other banks to learn how it should be done !! - thanks again -

  • easy to open and competitive rate Col149

    Excellent opening of account, easy and straight forward. However, as I transferred directly from cleared bank funds, I expected the money to hit the account on the same day. The money was transferred on the 1st by debit card but was credited to the account on the 4th. I have written to Aldermore and am waiting for a reply.

  • Good ISA, but further info about it didn't get to me.dissapointed that Steve999

    When I took out 5yr FR ISA I was told that I may be able increase my contribution to 15K after July 1st, but that Aldermore policy about this had not been decided yet. I was overseas for much of Summer, but phoned early September to find out what the policy was. I was told that I could have made up the sum to 15K, but was now just too late. I was told that you had sent a letter to me about this, but this was never received. I am rather dissapointed that this opportunity has passed me by. This is the first time in my recollection that a letter from a financial institution has failed to reach me, so I will need some convincing that it was actually sent.

  • best rate available for income Douggie78

    I found that the website was simple to navigate and the red tape involved was an absolute minimum compared to some of the larger, longer established banks. Identity checks were carried out behind the scenes without having to submit passports, driving licences and assorted bank statements tax assessments and utility bills with the risk of Royal Mail losing the lot.

  • Always meets my needs NigellnSurrey

    This is the 5th bond I have opened with Aldermore. Competitive rate when compared to other financial providers. As always the account opening process is simplicity in itself and everything works first time. Well done Aldermore!
