You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Banks

Barclays Bank

Alphin Brook Rd, Exeter EX2 8RG, UK – 0345 734 5345

I had to pay a cheque into German Shepherd Rescue Elite (we obviously rescue German Shepherd dogs that have fallen on bad times though no fault of their own). I was going to pay it in to the Exeter city branch, which is a bit of a hassle having to go into town, but a quick check on the internet showed there was a branch in Marsh Barton. I found that I can park right outside a couple of steps and I'm in the bank, but even better, I didn't have to mess around with one of those self service machines, I could give the lovely cashier the cheque and the paying in details, job done. Thank you :)

NatWest Bank

Stocker Rd, Exeter EX4 4SZ, UK – 0345 788 8444

Apart from the time it takes to get seen the service is great

Very patient and friendly staff.

HSBC

Greenewable Energy Ltd, 1 Emperor Way, Exeter EX1 3QS, UK – 0845 740 4404

Ive specifically open an HSBC account becsuse working in Sowton, it's so easy to use the automated 'paying in' services or car withdrawals. May take few minurs more if need to use the 'counter' services as only one desk.My existing bank has closed its other small offices so this is perfect for me.

Building Societies

Yorkshire Building Society

187-189 High St, Exeter EX4 3DU, UK – 01392 330796

Extremely helpful. Lovely offices. Service excellent.

With little difference between products in this highly regulated financial sector - service is everything!

Nationwide

The cashiers are excellent and have been helpful. Overt eye contact with the clipboard lady @_the front. I don't want to use a machine, The hurry agenda

Transferred in 2016 after 40-plus years with the spivs at Barclays and have no regrets except that I stayed with Barclays for so long. This branch of Nationwide is excellent, the staff are courteous and knowledgeable, and the bank seems to be efficient, honest and well-run.
