By 1997 Abbey had over 16 million customers (and rising). Abbey National continue to diversify more and more, trying to become a one stop shop for all your financial needs. Abbey now offer a bewildering array of services including, healthcare, pensions, mortgages, foreign currency, home, car and holiday insurance, investment funds, offshore savings, PEP's, ISA's as well as all the usual banking services of loans, current and saving's accounts. But are they any good? How do their rates compare with others? And are you happy putting your eggs in one basket?

We lift the lid on the Abbey's roof to see how you feel about what they are doing with your assets. In 1998, Abbey National's profit was up 11.5% to 1.6 Billion.
