Santander named top business bank
Santander has won four awards, including Best Business Bank of the Year, at the 2011 Business Moneyfacts Awards.

Held at the London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square last night, more than 400 people attended the awards, recognising business and commercial finance providers, brokers and trade bodies with the best products, service and innovation over the last year.

BM Solutions was named as best buy-to-let mortgage provider, while Godiva Mortgages won the award for best service from a buy-to-let mortgage provider.

Drawbridge took home the award for best bridging finance provider and Masthaven Bridging Finance was named as having the best service from a bridging finance provider.

In addition, Barclays Bank and Santander Business Banking were named best commercial mortgage provider and best service from a commercial mortgage provider respectively.

Lee Tillcock, editor of Business Moneyfacts, said: “The challenges for the commercial finance sector still remain and the balance between meeting regulatory mandates and increasing funding lines will provide the biggest test for the industry through the next 12 months.

“The need to continue the good work that has been started is vital and a continued commitment to quality and product choice displayed by the worthy finalists and eventual winners for these awards is of paramount importance.”
