B-North is here to disrupt the £150bn UK business lending market.
It shouldn't take months to complete a loan facility with your lender.
We are partnering with global fintech leaders to deliver great personal service, transforming the lending experience, both for UK businesses and for commercial finance intermediaries.
To do this takes great people, so we have assembled a team with market leading experience to create a new force in business lending.
Here at B-North we’re applying for regulatory permission and, if successful, will build a bank which has a singular purpose - to provide finance to UK businesses in a timely, professional & frictionless way. The first genuinely regional business bank in 150 years.
We are building a business with 3 core USPs...
1. We will deliver up to 10x faster than the market standard by combining cloud-native technology with the trust of face-to-face relationship banking;
2. Our unique decentralised model will place core banking functions closer to the customer, in a regional context, including relationship, credit and valuation professionals; and
3. Distribution will be augmented by the large and fast-growing commercial ﬁnance broker channel for which we have developed a unique economic proposition.Contact Us
Brokers are playing an increasingly important role in helping SMEs access the financial support they need.
We have been working closely with brokers to develop our proposition – our aim is to partner with high quality brokers over the long term and our proposition very much reflects this ambition.
