Our Beliefs

We believe that accepting and transferring money should be simple and uncomplicated.

We believe that bank accounts are a utility. No person or business can function without them. Being refused a bank account is as damaging as being refused electricity, and yet 1.5 million people remain ‘unbanked’ in the UK.

We believe that banks should be responsive to local needs.

We believe that banks should not indulge in speculation or risky activities unless explicitly given permission to do so by the customer.

We believe there aren’t enough banks. The UK is dominated by 5 major High Street banks which account for more than 90% of banking. Germany, by contrast, has hundreds of banks and credit unions account for over 70% of banking.

Why Change?

We are 100% convinced that the vast majority of people in the UK have little or no understanding of the current banking and monetary systems.

We also believe that banks take advantage of people by trying to complicate things as much as possible, particularly through the use of jargon.
