Ring-fencing changes: how to be extra vigilant about fraud

Ring-fencing is new UK legislation brought in after the financial crisis to protect customers and the day-to-day banking services they rely on. It mostly affects larger UK banks that will have to separate their day-to-day banking from other, riskier, activities such as investment banking.

Although the majority of our customers won’t be affected by ring-fencing changes, other banks will be making changes which may require their customers to change their sort code and account numbers. During this period of change in UK banking, you should be extra vigilant of fraud and scams.

Further details about ring-fencing and managing the risk of fraud may be found on our websites Fraud prevention and security centre
