About Us

Shawbrook is a specialist UK savings and lending bank founded in 2011 to serve the needs of SMEs and individuals in the UK with a range of lending and saving products. At 31 December 2017 our total lending reached £4.9 billion and we have now raised more than £4.4 billion in customer deposits.

We differentiate ourselves by concentrating on markets where our specialist knowledge and personalised approach to underwriting offer us a competitive advantage. This supports attractive, stable returns and sustainable growth, and also benefits businesses and consumers in parts of the market which continue to be poorly served by traditional high street banks. Fundamental to our success is a relationship focus which puts the interests of our customers and business partners at the heart of everything we do, built on a culture which stresses the use of our experience and judgement to make decisions that balance risk, return and customer needs.

Our markets:
Property Finance:
Provides finance to the specialist residential investment and commercial property mortgage market and to professional property investors and SME owner-occupiers. Second charge mortgages to consumers.
Business Finance:
We primarily finance business critical assets operated by established UK SME and healthcare businesses. In addition, we provide facilities to smaller UK financial institutions through wholesale and block facilities.
Consumer lending operates through relationships with major home improvement firms, in-store and online retailers, carefully selected holiday ownership companies and loan broker partners.

We employ over 750 staff.
