Skandia tops Tenet’s service survey for second year

Skandia has come top in Tenet’s member survey of providers service for the second year in a row.

The IFA group says Skandia got the best score in the majority of categories including product range and innovation, service and support, e-commerce capability and the quality of training and development.

Standard Life was voted best provider for image and brand while Legal & General came top for perceptions of its financial strength.

Tenet says Friends Provident and Aegon Scottish Equitable were also highly rated.

From this, we can both acknowledge excellent service and highlight areas where improvements could be made.”
