Royal Bank of Scotland has paved the way in banking ever since it was established in 1727. From the world’s first overdraft, and the first house purchase loan by a UK bank, to the first fully-fledged internet banking service and mobile banking app, we have a history of making banking easier for our customers.
We are committed to supporting the individual areas that make up the North West region and have long had a presence in Lancashire. It’s enabled us to recognise and react to the diverse needs of our customers by understanding the challenges businesses face. We’re committed to helping businesses grow and to do this, we know you’ll need more than just financial support.
Several of our specialist teams call Lancashire home and our joined-up approach means we’re on hand to support a wide range of banking requirements at each stage of business development. Regardless of whether you’re a personal customer, an established business or just starting up, our teams are ready to talk either face-to-face or over the phone at a time that best suits you.
What one top tip would you give to a business owner embarking on a growth plan?
Understand your strengths; research and utilise the support networks you have around you to develop. The experience and knowledge of your network is invaluable at each stage of business growth.
Why is Lancashire a great place to grow a business?
Lancashire’s people, lifestyle and historic manufacturing culture provide real business opportunity across a wide range of sectors.
