What is Shawbrook Bank?
Established in 2011, Shawbrook Bank is a specialist bank offering an alternative to traditional high-street lenders, working both directly with consumers and through a broker network.
Although a young company, it describes itself as offering “the old-fashioned quality of good sense”, combined with a focus on providing a personalised service to customers. Shawbrook Bank offers personal loans of up to £35,000, guaranteeing fixed rates and fixed monthly repayments over the term of the loan. What sets it apart from other lenders is the case-by-case approach to rates, amounts and terms – Shabrook Bank says it looks at every customer individually.
Shawbrook offers both secured and unsecured personal loans, so whether you’re consolidating debt, improving your home, upgrading your car, or planning some other major expenditure, a personal loan from Shawbrook Bank could be an option.
