Today, we serve the needs of our personal and business customers through our branches, our regional business centres, telephone banking and a wide range of digital banking channels.

Making more possible

We play a fundamental role in driving Northern Ireland’s economic growth by lending to people and to businesses. We also believe we have a fundamental responsibility to ensure we are contributing to the wider society that we serve and the local communities we are a part of. How we do business, is as important as the business we do. Our vision is to make more possible for our customers, our employees, our stakeholders and for society.

These three words sum up what we stand for in Northern Ireland - past, present and future.

Our history

We started life as the Northern Banking Partnership in 1809, and we’ve come a long way since then. Our roots here go back for more than 200 years – so we’re able to use our local presence, influence and understanding of the local market to help our customers and to give more back to where we live and work. While our trading name has changed a few times over the years, we’re still at the heart of all that’s best in Northern Ireland banking.
