Around three quarters of the British public say they trust their bank (74%), according to a new ITV News Index poll carried out by ComRes.
Exactly the same proportion said that banks are generally a safe place to keep your money.
However, a large minority (34%) think it is most important to have a broad choice of different bank accounts, even if this makes banking more complicated.
ComRes polled 2,034 British adults online between April 4 and 6 this week.
