Horticulture isn’t your typical 9 to 5. That’s something we’ve learnt in the 200 years we’ve been supporting the agricultural and horticultural industries. With volatile product prices, legislation changes (and Mother Nature) to deal with, it’s key that horticultural businesses work with a bank that understands them.
Today, our dedicated team of over 140 specialists helps Britain’s agricultural businesses grow. Through relationship managers, a personal point of contact, we get to know our customers’ ambitions and concerns, providing them with tailored, relevant accounts and services – from Capital Loans, Asset Finance and Green Energy Finance.
Our relationship managers are independently accredited by the Chartered Institute of Bankers and endorsed by the NFU. Which means they not only know their AARs from their APRs, they can offer helpful advice on international, national and local agricultural issues, too.
And, to help our customers navigate the complexities of Employment Law, Health & Safety and Environmental Issues, we offer Mentor – our advisory and consultancy service. Unique to the banking industry, and available 24/7, 365 days a year, it lets agricultural business owners get on with the things they do best.
