The health and wellbeing of Shawbrook’s employees, partners and people we serve is always a priority.
Following the coronavirus outbreak, we are monitoring the situation closely and adhering to guidance set out by the UK Government and Public Health England. We have a robust operational resiliency program in place, which is regularly tested and covers all of our teams and offices. We are well prepared to maintain our services in adverse circumstances and continue to operate as normal.
At Shawbrook we are committed to supporting all of our customers, not least those experiencing difficulties as a result of the current situation. We will provide whatever support we can to help them through this period. As always, every customer case will be considered on its own merit and we encourage those with concerns to get in touch as early as possible via the contact details below.
Shawbrook Bank is regulated by the FCA and the PRA. The group conducts regular stress testing designed to test the Bank’s resilience. We are confident that Shawbrook’s balance sheet is resilient enough to face a severe stress scenario and we maintain actions to preserve our capital during such times as these. In addition to this, eligible deposits with Shawbrook are protected up to a total of £85,000 by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, the UK's deposit protection scheme.
If you're concerned about debt or meeting repayments, the important thing is not to hide or ignore it. The earlier you address a potential problem, the sooner you can take action to solve it, reducing stress and potentially saving money in the long run.
