Specialist Banking (SB) was launched in 2017 by Medianett - a trailblazing publisher within the specialist financial services market - in response to the emergence of specialist and challenger banks in the UK and the lack of awareness around their products and how they compare with the high street banks.
SB is the go-to publication for breaking news, exclusive interviews, case studies, product updates and authoritative features that our broker readership returns to again and again.
It is also supported by the most influential names in the specialist banking market.
SB reports on the entire specialist banking market in the UK, as well as educating its readers on other challenger banking developments across the world.
SB publishes daily news, breaking news alerts and regular weekly newsletters to keep its readers up to date with the latest banking products aimed at small businesses.
