By: N_Walayat

Big Banks Punish Loyal Savings Customers With Abysmal Interest Rates / Personal_Finance / Savings Accounts

By: MoneyFacts

As rates continue to improve away from the biggest banks*, it may be a good time for savers to reconsider more unfamiliar brands to get the best possible return.

One reason for this decline stems from a shake-up in the credit card market in 2015, when the EU interchange fee cap ruling was implemented. Its purpose was to save consumers money at the tills by capping the transaction fee for using their card.
