A BUILDING society with roots in Huddersfield has been recognised for the products it offers to young savers.
The Yorkshire Building Society picked up the trophy in the category for Youth Savings Account at the Moneywise Children’s Savings Awards 2011 for its Freedom account. The society was also highly commended in the Best Children’s Savings Account category for its One Day account.
The Moneywise Children’s Savings Awards are the only UK awards that take a complete look at financial products for children and set a benchmark for achievement based on performance, consistency and choice.
Sarah Lawrence, senior product manager for savings at the Bradford-based society, said the products were designed to encourage young people to get into the savings habit from an early age.
The award is the latest in a string of accolades received by the Yorkshire during 2010, including the Moneywise Best ISA Service Provider and What Mortgage Best National Building Society.
