Three quarters of UK adults believe banks should be more transparent about what they do with their customers’ money, according to research from challenger bank Triodos.
The results show an increased awareness of ethical savings and investments at a time when the financial sector is under increased scrutiny, and a shift in consumer attitudes on climate change.
76 per cent of respondents said that banks should be more transparent about their investments
50 per cent said that it should be standard practice for banks to make their customers aware of where their money is being invested or lent
55 per cent believe banks do not provide enough information on sustainability
