About Gatehouse Bank

Gatehouse Bank, formerly Milestone Savings, is a new ethical Sharia-compliant challenger bank that is authorised by the Financial Conduct Authority and the Prudential Regulation Authority.

Gatehouse Bank adheres to a strict ethical code of Sharia banking principles, and subsequently, they won’t invest in gambling, alcohol, tobacco or arms. Instead, they support projects with less ethical concerns, such as property and real estate projects across the UK.

The principles of Sharia banking prohibit excessive uncertainty, gambling and speculation, and as the Financial Services Compensation Scheme protects savings products offered by Gatehouse Bank through Raisin UK, you can rest assured that your capital is secure.

Security and deposit guarantee

Deposits are eligible for protection by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) The FSCS is the United Kingdom’s statutory deposit guarantee scheme that covers deposits in individual savings accounts up to £85,000, per banking group regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority or the Prudential Regulation Authority. It is available for deposits with most UK high-street and online banks and means if the bank fails, and deposits become unavailable, the scheme may cover your deposit account deposit up to the £85,000 per person, per banking group limit.

Compensation limits are per person per firm, not per deposit. Be aware that if you have other deposits with this bank (or banking group) then the £85,000 protection applies only to eligible deposits up to this limit.

Timescales for the return of your money can vary between different banks and banking groups. This bank holds funds under a trust model. Funds held under a trust model can take up to three months to be returned, but in most cases will be returned sooner than this.
