Aldermore has reached its 10-year banking milestone.
Since the specialist bank launched in May 2009, it has helped hundreds of thousands of SMEs, homeowners, landlords and savers.
Highlights over the past 10 years include:
- achieved 10 consecutive years of loan growth
- exceeded £9bn of gross mortgage lending since residential mortgages were established in 2010
- over £3bn of business finance lending
- grown from 30 to over 1,000 employees
- more than 600 brokers have been trained since the launch of the Aldermore Broker Training Academy in 2014
Phillip Monks, chief executive officer at Aldermore (pictured above), said: “The response to the financial crash of 2008 needed to be new and radical; the traditional ways of doing things in the banking sector was over.
“Our success has been to rise to the challenge of delivering customers’ changing requirements and expectations in a fierce and often fractured financial sector.”
John Glen MP, economic secretary to the Treasury and City minister, added: “Aldermore has made a vital contribution to the UK retail banking sector as a challenger bank that creates greater choice for consumers and business.”
