Investment International Award
After being voted the Best US Dollar Account Provider by the readers of Investment International, Alan Bougourd, managing director, Skipton International commented, "We are delighted to have won this prestigious award, as it recognises the international nature of our business. We launched our US dollar and euro accounts in mid 2008, as we realised our increasingly global client base needed the extra dimension of a foreign currency deposit holding.
Following our amalgamation with Scarborough Channel Islands which created Skipton International last year, we set ourselves the objective of becoming one of the most dynamic specialist offshore building society subsidiaries. We now have a strong reputation for innovation and consistently attractive offshore savings accounts, so this endorsement from the readers of Investment International is much appreciated by all of us here at Skipton International. This year, as well as developing new savings options, we are planning to add to our facilities to make account operation even easier for our customers, wherever they might be in the world."
