Directions (11-15): Read the following passage carefully and answer the questions given after the passage. Certain words/phrases have been printed in bold to help you locate them while answering some of the questions.
According to an old saw, Britons are more likely to get divorced than ditch their bank. That may not be quite true (in 2010, 3.8% of customers changed their bank accounts, while 1.1% of married people divorced), but it’s certainly the case that the British are loath to swap their current accounts. While 10% of electricity users switch every year, one study suggests that by 2023 only around 5% of bank customers will move their money in any one year. Human inertia has a lot to do with this – there’s always something more exciting to do than read one’s statements, even if it’s only collecting lint. But it’s not the only factor: Sir Donald Cruickshank’s report into banking in 2000 rightly identified the numerous obstacles to switching. It was also a theme of the Vicker’s review – which has prompted this week’s overhaul of the current account switching service where before it could take anything up to 30 working days to move from one bank to another, the new standardized system will take a maximum of seven. It should also be better at handling the migration of direct debits. No doubt this will make the lives of customers easier. Even so, this particular overhaul deserves only one cheer. For one thing, the monitoring of its success is not quite as energetic as it might be. For another, it is hard to see what incentive there is to swap banks, when there are so few big banks to choose from. In that respect, it is of a piece with the other financial reforms announced since the crash: fine, as far as it goes, but not the answer. Let us deal with the monitoring point first: the payments council, which sets the strategy for how bank payments are made in the UK, is also largely funded by banks and building societies. Perhaps then it is unsurprising to see that its criteria for judging whether the new switching service is a success are rather modest. They comprise: whether customers know about the service; whether customers feel confident in the service; and how well it performs. Not included on that brief list is how many people actually use the service. This would appear to be a classic case of the financial industry setting its own homework and making sure the questions aren’t too hard. For a more searching investigation, we shall have to wait until the Office of Fair Trading look into things in 2015. Why the wait? Moreover, why not take up the challenge from the Treasury select committee, and allow customers to carry their account numbers with them wherever they go – which would have been a big step forward. And without the breaking up of the giant banks, all customers are really being offered is a slightly easier, shorter journey between a rock and a hard place.
