The Office of Fair Trading (OFT) has launched a market study into personal bank current account pricing, alongside a formal investigation into the fairness of charges for unauthorised overdrafts and returned items. The study will help the OFT consider the current level and incidence of the charges in the broader context of efficiency, transparency, value and consumer choice within personal current accounts. This will be the most wide-ranging study into personal banking to date.
