It's about more than finance

We offer a lot more than tailored financial products. Our sector specialists bring strategic input and valuable contacts to help you achieve your business ambitions.

Need insight into a challenge? Introductions to 'angel' investors? Pitching to large tech companies looking to buy? We’re here, to help you from newbie through startup to successful sale and exit. We believe in a truly collaborative approach – that’s why, with 31% market share*, we support more technology, media and telecoms (TMT) businesses than any other UK bank.  

Support for every stage of your business journey
Dedicated relationship managers

Get the strategic advantage. We have over 60 dedicated TMT specialist relationship managers across the UK who understand the unique challenges of this sector – and who could advise on suitable solutions.

Pitch the top tech buyers

We’re proud to serve 88% of the UK’s top 350 TMT businesses (and 100% of the top 100). So we’re in a position to directly introduce purchase-ready start-ups to most of the country’s major tech buyers. 

Meet our rainmakers

Supporting you with the right solution, whatever stage your tech business
