We put our customers at the centre of everything we do. That’s not an empty promise. And neither is our pledge to make a difference.
Our commitment to carbon neutrality and a prosperous UK economy supports employment growth, champions ethical choices, and allows opportunity to flourish for everyone.
As a fully-licensed digital bank, we offer the same level of protection as traditional high street banks. When you save with us, your eligible deposits are protected (up to £85,000) by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS).
We use technology to make borrowing fast, transparent and simple. And when it comes to lending decisions, we’re not restricted by numbers from the past. Our forward-looking approach allows us to build highly customised solutions that help you achieve your ambitions.
In some ways securing funding from OakNorth was similar to the process with traditional lenders, while in other ways it was refreshingly different. They asked for detailed financial information, both historic and forward-looking, and the lending decisions were committee-based. The most notable differences were speed, transparency and a personalised service.
Really helpful accounts; recommended to many people because, if you’re like me and struggle with budgeting, then the accounts that OakNorth offers are perfect. I have three accounts with them and use them all – they’re super easy to use and the app is just another utility to help with very quick withdrawal. Nothing to lose and much to save!
“Their experience gained from working with some of the leading property developers really shone through during the entire lending process, allowing us time to invest in areas where our own expertise and passion can make the most impact.”
“OakNorth went above and beyond what was required, and I have no doubt that their bespoke facility will help us deliver our exciting growth plans going forward.”
This is the third time we’ve chosen OakNorth Bank as our funding partner and there’s a reason we keep returning to them – the team is collaborative, constructive, and commercial. There’s no broad-brush assumptions or computer-says-no decisions.
