GB Bank is a new bank focused on one thing:
Getting Britain Building again.

Introducing GB Bank. A new bank that will proudly support property developers in regions of the UK which have been underserved.

Our Ambition

To lend £3 billion over the next 5 years

We will provide property development loans of between £1 million and £5 million to regional property developers, SMEs, and construction companies across the UK.

Our ambition is to lend £3 billion over five years, building a £1 billion plus balance sheet. This will enable us to fund almost 20,000 homes and several million square feet of office space, supporting the creation of over 100,000 jobs.

How will we make this happen? Through our accessible bespoke property development loan products and highly competitive fixed rate savings bonds, giving savvy savers rates they’ll love for terms of up to five years.

What we do

GB Bank is a force for good, committed to boosting economic growth and prosperity for underserved regions of the UK.

Driving a positive change by being at the heart of a property development eco-system, dedicated to regenerating communities across the UK.

GB Bank is currently authorised with restrictions (AWR) by the Prudential Regulation Authority and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and the Prudential Regulation Authority. AWR means that we are not open to trade and are in a ‘mobilisation’ phase whilst we get everything ready to start operating as a Bank. We are working closely with our regulators to get these restrictions lifted later in the year, at which point we will be able to accept customer deposits and begin lending.

The people with purpose

GB Bank is a bank with a purpose that every member of its team believes in. To bring economic growth and prosperity for underserved UK regions. We are fuelled by a desire to make a difference. We want for our customers' lives to be improved when they bank with us; we picture a bank working at the heart of the community, together with its savers and borrowers to bring towns, cities and regions across Britain back to life.

As the UK recovers from the pandemic it is becoming even more important that we improve the provision of finance to small businesses. GB Bank is perfectly positioned to better serve regional developers who will help Britain build more homes and spaces and drive economic prosperity for all. Obtaining our provisional banking licence is real testament to what the team has delivered so far, and I believe with our experience and expertise we are strongly placed to bring about real change to this market”.

Paul Rippon

Accessing finance still remains a challenge for many developers and it’s our ambition to make that a much easier, more straightforward process. However, GBB’s purpose goes beyond lending money. Our team is passionate about supporting property developers in areas that have been forgotten about. We want to lead and support the movement to level up the North because by getting Britain building again, we will create more homes and spaces and drive economic prosperity for all."
