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:
Throughout the pandemic, our 77 stores stayed open for customers who needed us.
Our deposits grew by 3% across the year to £16.1 billion in total.
To our customers and local businesses, we’ve lent more than £1.5 billion though government loan schemes to date^.
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 now service more than 2.4 million customer accounts – it’s great to have you all with us.
