Helping your business to grow

Flexible lending initiatives

Our mission is to enable businesses to invest through our range of funding options.

That’s why we offer flexible lending measures like capital-free periods, extended lending terms, and funding for trading business premises up to 100% value, subject to lending criteria.

What’s more, we’ve introduced a series of initiatives designed to provide businesses with improved levels of working capital through invoice finance whilst continuing to support capital expenditure through a range of competitive asset finance solutions.

Clydesdale Bank understand UK business banking needs - because we care about here.

Understanding our customers

We work closely with our business customers; building relationships that help us further understand their individual needs as well as the industries in which they operate. In addition to this, we undertake research that provides valuable insight on how we can continue to fully support our customers.
