Santander PPI bill to increase again
Despite having to add a further £65 million to the Santander PPI bill it’s UK Chief Executive, Ana Botin, had the audacity to state she was happy with the banks financial figures. Further proof if needed that banks are only interested in trying to portray a positive picture for the financial markets.
Whilst this is smaller than the likes of Lloyds Group (including Halifax, Bank of Scotland and Black Horse to name a few), Barclays, HSBC and RBS/Natwest, it’s still an extraordinary figure in anyone’s books.
More bad news to follow
Santander is currently in the process of preparing the bank for a stock market flotation and can hardly afford for much bad news.
In what appears to be the next big mis-selling scandal, Santander like the rest of the major banks is bracing itself for a flurry of claims regarding Packaged Bank Accounts.
With an estimated 1 in 5 UK customers having a Packaged Bank Account, or Paid-For Bank Account as they are sometimes referred to, the general opinion of the banking sector is set for another huge kick in the teeth.
Millions yet to claim
Whilst it’s clear bank account mis-selling will be the next big news, the biggest mis-selling scandal ever to hit the UK has a long way to go before it’s over.
We estimate that 7 million people have yet to make a PPI claim, with the majority of these completely unaware they have been sold PPI.
This is purely and simply down to banks and lenders hiding PPI policies within loans, mortgages, credit / store cards and hire purchase agreements without the knowledge of the customer due to the huge profits PPI generated for the financial sector.
