Philip Dunne, Managing Director of Nationwide International said: “Nationwide International prides itself on offering some of the best rates for our savers across our whole range of accounts. To be recognised across all five categories and to win four of them is testament to the hard work we put into ensuring that our rates are among the most competitive in the market.
“The Nexus awards are some of the most respected in the industry and these accolades really demonstrate the great rates we have been able to offer to new and existing customers throughout 2012 and how Nationwide remains ‘On Your Side’.”
