Unity Trust Bank has reported that loan balances now exceed £400m.
The socially conscience commercial bank recently revealed that profit had increased by 68% in 2018, while it has also approved over £200m worth of lending to firms and projects that will deliver community, economic or environmental benefits.
Margaret Willis, CEO at Unity Trust Bank (pictured above), said: “Since becoming independent in 2015, we have seen our lending and profitability more than double.
“This could not be achieved without loyal customers, shareholder support and engaged and committed employees.
“Increasingly, organisations and businesses are looking for an ethical bank that shares their values.
“Our performance shows that profit and community value go hand in hand.
“The better we perform, the greater societal impact we can have.”
