About OakNorth Bank

Launched in September 2015, OakNorth Bank is the UK bank for entrepreneurs, by entrepreneurs, providing loans of £500k to £50m to the “Missing Middle” – high-growth businesses which are the most significant contributors of economic and employment growth, yet still struggle to access fast, flexible debt finance. To date, the bank has lent several billion pounds to hundreds of businesses across the UK who have collectively gone on to create tens of thousands of new homes and jobs across the country. OakNorth Bank’s lending is supported by its range of Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS)-protected savings accounts, available to savers at all stages of life.

Security and deposit guarantee

Deposits are eligible for protection by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS) http://www.fscs.org.uk/. 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.’ and vice versa.
