The facts and figures
Over 190,000 new customers have joined us, bringing our total number of customer accounts to 1.8 million. The number of personal and business current accounts has grown by 23%, compared to the same period last year. In London and the South East, 18% of Business current account switchers chose Metro Bank.
We’re continuing to bring the banking revolution to new locations. We opened our 67th store in Enfield a few weeks ago, and our trademark grand opening party went down a storm.
Our underlying profit before tax was £13.6 million.
We’ll be opening 3 stores in the Midlands over the next couple of months. Also, our new stores in Manchester and Liverpool will open their doors at the end of this year.
We can’t wait to bring our award-winning customer service and great range of products to these cities.
We’re also working hard to make our digital services even better. We’ll be delivering an insights service for our business customers in the second half of the year, as well as a time-saving mobile cash pick-up and drop-off service.
