Satisfaction with banks declines during Finance Royal Commission – Big four hit hardest

bank-sign

Market Research : Finding No: 7771

New results from Roy Morgan shows that bank customer satisfaction has declined from 81.2% in the six months to January 2018, prior to the Finance Royal Commission, down to 78.5% in the six months to September 2018. This decline of 2.7% points was mainly due to a drop in satisfaction of 3.6% points for the big four banks, compared to an overall decline of only 0.7% points for all other banks. Despite lower satisfaction with banks since the Royal Commission, it is worth noting that the clear majority of customers are still satisfied with their bank at levels well above the long term average and much higher than the 58.7% recorded in 2001, before the improving trend.
