Customer Stories

Hazel Tree Montessori Nursery

“I’m delighted to refinance with Unity. They are a very good fit for my portfolio from a social marketing side. Other banks were interested, but the whole bureaucracy of asking for something and it taking six months to sort out put me off. I like the old-fashioned way of being able to speak to someone and it getting done immediately.”

Danielle Hignett

Little Learners

“When my loan agreement came up for renewal, I decided to switch to Unity as it gave my business the ability to grow at the pace I want. Unity offers a new concept in banking – it’s entrepreneurial, has good ethical grounding and an appetite for things that are relevant in the marketplace.”

Teddy Towers

“Unity offered a good rate of interest and I like the fact that I have a relationship manager who I can phone if I need to. Unity’s values attracted me too because they fit in with what I’m trying to achieve at the nursery.”
