Relationship Managers

Ask lending customers what they appreciate most about banking with Unity Trust Bank and most will say the personal service and one-to-one support they get from their relationship managers.

We have a team of specialists based around the UK who have many years of experience in banking and extensive knowledge of the sectors we support, such as education and healthcare.

Their expertise not only benefits established operators, who know that their relationship manager has an in-depth understanding of the day-to-day workings of their business and the challenges they face, it also provides valuable insight and guidance for first-time buyers.

We know that one size doesn’t fit all in terms of banking solutions, and our relationship managers work with customers to address individual needs. It’s this exceptional personal service that sets Unity Trust Bank apart from other lenders.

“My relationship manager Scott Hutchinson has been brilliant. He is very experienced and with this being my first business he talked me through everything and gave good advice.

“Pharmacies have a unique structure and it was reassuring to speak to someone who understands the way they are run.”

“Businesses like mine need relationship managers because we have so many complexities to talk about.

“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.”

“I can’t rate my experience with Unity Trust Bank, and my relationship manager Michael Wicks, highly enough, it was phenomenal.

“The transaction was faster and smoother because Michael has experience of deals like this. The whole customer experience is what makes this bank so special.”

“Our previous bank didn’t have a clue about the systems our business needs to follow or what we needed to invest in. Andy Ball and James Whittaker understood our business and what we’re trying to achieve.”

“We chose to refinance with Unity because we were really impressed with their proposition and with our bank manager, Paul Kelly, who was pragmatic and keen to do business.”
