  • Renewal of Fixed Rate Saving Account 1 year meliza1232

    Preliminary letter regarding maturity date of current Fixed Rate 1 Year account received on 6 November 2014. I telephoned that day to convey my instructions but was told I was a day too early as my current Fixed Rate Account would not mature until 7 December 2014. Customer Service Lady promised to ring me the following morning between 10 am - 11 am but she did not so I had to ring Aldermore again to repeat my instructions. It would have been helpful if the preliminary letter had stated -do not contact us until 7 November 2014 or later. The Interest rate offered was reasonable in comparison to other banks or building societies.

  • Straightforward product Philip

    It might not have the very best rate but Aldemore are competitive and opening the new bond online was very straightforward. Instructions are clear, funding by transfer from an existing account was a breeze and, in my experience, communication come the maturity date is first class.

  • Competitive rate and suited my needs Lijonel52

    Opening the account was simple, albeit I had already registered details for other accounts, but it all meshed smoothly and simply. While the rate was not quite as good as another bank I tried to use, the latter's systems were poor and rejected several attempts to make the deposit so Aldermore's efficiency was far superior.

  • Excellent! OZ14

    Such a pleasure to login and - more particularly - to find LOGOUT so easily! Simple to print out the part of my account summary which I want without multiple pages being printed also. Opening of account straightforward and completely stress free. Initial payment moved from my nominated account on the exact date as advised. All very pleasing and appreciated. The interest rate - my initial concern - is quite competitive also.

  • Staff helpful, online average Gray1

    I chose Direct Debit to transfer my money, but I would have preferred BACS. My bank has a limit of £20,000 in a day, but Aldermore insist that all transfers must be completed in one day. After having a check posted but not arrived at another bank, I am loath to repeat the process. However, your staff were very pleasant and helpful when I 'phoned.

  • Pointless Wait to Take Money Linnet

    I already had an Aldermore account so the DD was set up for me. My husband sent a cheque, as he was a new customer. Both new accounts started the same day! Seems to me I lost a couple of days interest at least, due to Aldermore being slow to call on the DD. This needs sorting out. Otherwise everything else was good.

  • Just what I wanted. Roger35

    Attractive rate of interest. Easy online application. Identity verified electronically, unlike a competitor whose requirement for paper slowed everything down. Rate on day of application guaranteed, unlike competitor whose paper requirements resulted in loss of rate initially offered! Deposit easy with ample options. Rapid acknowledgement of account opening and funding. Wish they were all as easy as this!

  • Fulfilled all my requirements Lopears

    I have been an Aldermore customer before, so when I revisited their site to find out what the latest rates were for fixed saving bonds, I was pleasantly surprised and decided on the spot to invest some cash I had come into. Needless to say, the service I received when speaking to an adviser on the 'phone and then using their on-line purchasing software were all first rate. The account was set up immediately and I had the paper work back within a few days. How I wish all companies provided the same high level of service and customer satisfaction as Aldermore - I would highly recommend investing with this company. A very happy customer from Somerset

  • Interest Nadge1

    If you want to achieve a market leading position and 5 stars overall - increase the interest rate. At least you could offer existing customers a slightly higher rate to prevent me switching to a reasonable company offering a higher rate.

  • suited my needs perfectly Vintage

    After 5 years with a fixed rate Bond,all yearly paperwork confirming tax paid etc. arrived on time without me asking, Bond came up for renewal,paper work and options easy to follow,rates a cut above the others ,not only renewed but also added extra funds taken from another provider. Well done for making paper work straight forward,with great options.

  • It's not about loyalty but who offers the best rate Portbell

    When I choose where to invest, I don't consider loyalty, no one got rich by being loyal. I look at the best rate on offer and invariably Aldermore comes out on top. Obviuosly, I have to consider the £85000 issue when investing which is a problem, as I have to ensure the possibility of not being protected in the event of losing my money should anything unforeseen occur.

  • A responsive, helpful organisation stratdl

    This was my first venture into placing savings with a non high street bank. I am not the brightest on computers and had a few queries, but a couple of phone calls to Aldermore resolved these, the staff being very helpful. I am pleased to find a responsive, helpful organisation who were very prompt in sending correspondence.

  • Complemented my cash investment portfolio Tony9

    As an existing customer of Aldermore I was pleased to find an account which had a competitive rate of interest which fitted my longer term cash savings strategy whilst providing a monthly interest payment. Adding a new account to my Aldermore investments was a very straightforward process, requiring just a few minutes online.

  • Prompt service with prompt written confirmations Debbie

    I am a first-time saver with Aldermore. I am not usually inclined to open accounts via the 'internet', however, the instructions were so clear that completion of the application form was made very simple. I was impressed with the prompt written confirmations. A very good service provider.

  • Very effecient and suited my requirements Penny3

    I had not heard of Aldermore before I read a review in the Daily Mail. My current bond was maturing and the rate of interest I was quoted elsewhere was pretty dismal so I decided to change my bank to Aldermore where the rate was very competitive. The process was very easy and so far I have been impressed. I will definitely look towards Aldermore when I need to find a home for any forthcoming available money.

  • Best in the market for value and service Lloyd

    Opened the account online. So easy to do and to transfer money into the account.. Subsequent paperwork arrived in a short space of time and was without fault. Have opened accounts with Aldermore before and always, when I have money to deposit, I turn to them first to see what is on offer.

  • Best terms I could find. Godde

    I found the "on line" experience very difficult. Three of Aldermore staff tried to help but the third one finally took my investment over the phone. Apparently as an existing investor the "on line" steps precluded me from completing my investment "on line" paying by cheque. The staff were very polite and helpful and I am completely satisfied with the outcome but I feel the "on line" procedures need reviewing.
