Metro Bank comments on today's funding for lending figures

4th March 2013

Craig Donaldson, Chief Executive of Metro Bank comments on today’s Funding for Lending figures: “The Funding for Lending Scheme was introduced to help stimulate our economy through increasing lending to individuals and small businesses. Today’s figures show that there’s certainly more work to be done with some of the market players, but Metro Bank is a great example of how the scheme is working and we’re very proud of that.

“Banks must wake up to the fact that they are here to serve customers, not the other way around. We see customers day in and day out looking for sensible lending support from their banks, and this is a message to the market that we’re open for lending and want to do our part to support personal and business customers.”
