Consumer Attitudes towards Green and Ethical Finance - UK - November 2011
“The most committed consumers just don’t trust most financial services firms to behave ethically, and the more interest they take in ethical issues, the greater the level of mistrust is. Of more than a dozen mainstream financial services brands, there were only two that were, on balance, more trusted than distrusted by those consumers most interested in the idea of ethical financial services: the Co-operative Bank and Nationwide.”
– Toby Clark, Head of UK Financial Services Research
