The industry event recognises the best financial providers in the UK based on the products they offer.

“The Cumberland was awarded the title having offered the most consistently competitive mortgage products over the course of a year.

Peter Temple, deputy chief executive at the Cumberland, collected the award and said: “We are particularly delighted to win this award as Moneyfacts is a completely independent comparison site and one of the industry’s leading providers of impartial financial information.

“To be recognised by them shows that we are delivering our aim of providing great value mortgages.”

He added: “One of the important factors that Moneyfacts consider when judging is the entire cost of a mortgage, including fees. Many ‘best buy’ tables simply rank products according to the initial interest rate, which can be misleading.”

This title is the second national award the Cumberland has received this year for providing competitive mortgages, having been named Best Regional Building Society by Mortgage Finance Gazette.
