Fixed income investors

Our objective

We take a conservative approach to funding, focused on diversity of sources and a prudent maturity profile.

We borrow longer than we lend, which minimises refinancing risk and supports our strong credit rating.

Our Treasury is run as a cost centre, with the main purpose of efficiently funding the loan book, holding appropriate liquidity and minimising interest rate risk.

Our objective

Sources of funding

Our funding remains diverse through a range of corporate and retail deposits, wholesale facilities, senior unsecured debt including subordinated debt.

Furthermore, we have a range of secured funding facilities including securitisations of our premium and motor finance loan books.

This diversity increases resilience by reducing reliance on any individual source of funding.
