Working with professionals

Helping clients by building relationships

We focus purely on providing banking services to private clients, their families and family businesses, backed up by exceptional, personal service. We have collaborated with other professional advisers in areas including:

  • Banking facilities for trusts, including both deposits and lending
  • Self Invested Personal Pensions (SIPP), where individuals are looking to finance a property purchase from within their SIPP. We also provide deposit facilities for SIPPS
  • Property investors, for those with investments in property we support financing for clients' unique circumstances
  • Complex lending, where either a client’s requirements or their circumstances are unusual

The services we offer are designed to be complementary to those offered by other professional advisers. If you are a professional who has a client that requires banking support, please contact Murdo McHardy. Please read through the case studies we have so can see some examples of the type of help we have offered clients.
