GB Bank is a bank with a purpose. The reason GB Bank exists is to build better futures for the communities across the UK that need it the most.
Driving a positive change
Our founders identified that there was a distinct shortage of access to finance for regional developers, SME’s and construction companies and a longstanding undersupply of housing, particularly in the northern regions. From day one our ambition has been to be the bank of choice for property and regional regeneration. We are passionate about delivering bespoke lending products to drive economic growth to help communities that need it most. GB Bank secured its full UK banking licence in August 2022 enabling us to start driving our ambitious plans forward.
Regional knowledge and passion
We are passionate about our local roots in the North East, and use our regional knowledge and passion to support, regenerate and build the future of our local communities. GB Bank has put the renewal and growth of local communities that need support at the heart of its lending policy. It will provide accessible, bespoke property development loan products with incentives for sustainable and zero-carbon developments and those with high positive social impact in communities across the UK.
An effective risk management framework and a robust governance structure is a core part of our strategy and is integral to being an authorised and credible bank.
We’ve created a robust team with a powerful combination of entrepreneurs and industry experts together with a strong organisation structure to ensure the business is appropriately managing these risks.
Backed by the best
We are proud to have built a purpose driven bank committed to change by being at the heart of a property development eco-system. We have secured necessary regulatory capital with investment from a combination of high-net worth individuals, small businesses and our corner-stone investor, the Teesside Pension Fund. Thanks to their support GB Bank is well on its journey to achieve our ambition to build better futures.
