Our awards

Take a closer look at our growing list of awards.

Despite our short history, we have received numerous industry awards since we were founded, several of which we have been awarded for a number of years running.

We have repeatedly been recognised for the innovative lending and savings products that we offer to Britain’s small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), homeowners and savers.

This industry recognition is testament to our strong track record as a modern, legacy-free British bank challenging the established view of what banking should be.
