The Lloyds Bank Commercial Team prides itself on being a relationship bank, who will take time to understand their client’s businesses and deliver solutions to their challenges. With over 870 relationship managers nationally, we provide excellent service. The value we add has been demonstrated by Lloyds winning the Business Bank of the Year at the FD’s Excellence Awards, ten years in a row.
Our focus is to help Britain prosper, and we are proud to have supported the UK economy by increasing our lending to SME clients by 5% in 2014, against a declining marking. This has allowed business owners to fulfil their ambitions and has supported local economies.
The benefits of being in a Banking Group as opposed to a stand alone bank enables us to provide our clients with a wide range of solutions, from Vehicle Financing to Wealth Management, all within a local geography.
We have a firm commitment to supporting Coventry and Warwickshire businesses, which is demonstrated by an increased number of colleagues working within this area. For us, Coventry and Warwickshire is a great place to do business because of the investment being seen in the area. The impact of the good motorway network and improving public transport links to the region make it a great place to do business with lots of potential. Lloyds wants to work with local companies to maintain the momentum for business success that we have seen.
The relationships we hold with local companies, and public sector bodies, has demonstrated to us the inherent business focus of the area, which prompted Lloyds to increase the number of colleagues within Coventry to add further support to the local economy.
