Are you unhappy with your bank?
Customer satisfaction ratings for home loan borrowers has dived. Customer satisfaction scores for Australia’s big four banks has plummeted to their lowest levels since 2013 according to Roy Morgan Research.
The falling rates of customer satisfaction in our big four banks have been driven down by home loan customers who are not happy with the deal they are getting from their lender said Roy Morgan Research’s Communication Director Norman Morris.
“The big four bank’s home-loan customers’ low satisfaction levels are having a negative impact on overall customer satisfaction scores.”
“They all have lower satisfaction rates than the smaller banks’ home-loan customers,” said Mr Morris.
Why are Aussies unhappy with their banks?
Poor service, high fees and bank branches are the major issues that customers are complaining about according to Roy Morgan Research’s latest customer satisfaction report.
The overall average customer satisfaction score for the big four Australian banks – Commonwealth Bank, National Australia Bank (NAB), Westpac and ANZ Bank is now 79.5 per cent. That is down almost two per cent in the last year.
The average big bank customer satisfaction rating is now more than 10 percentage points lower than the overall average customer satisfaction score for Australia’s mutual banks, which is currently 90.7 per cent.
