2021 half year results

It’s time to review our year so far. We’re excited for the months ahead as we continue to bring people-people banking to customers across the UK. The safety of our customers and colleagues is still our number one priority, and we’re so proud to have supported our communities by keeping our stores open longer than most other high-street banks. Here’s a short video summing up our financial performance for the first half of this year:

Our year so far in facts and figures

We kept our stores open

Throughout the pandemic, our 77 stores stayed open for customers who needed us.

We checked the piggy bank

Our deposits grew by 3% across the year to £16.1 billion in total.

We lent a hand during tough times…

To our customers and local businesses, we’ve lent more than £1.5 billion though government loan schemes to date^.

…and navigated our way through them, too

Our underlying loss before tax was £110 million, reflecting where we are in our turnaround plan, as well as the impact of national lockdowns.

We said hello

We now service more than 2.4 million customer accounts – it’s great to have you all with us.
