OakNorth Bank was created to help the UK’s growth businesses and entrepreneurs reach their potential by providing them with bespoke, no-nonsense debt finance solutions.

Oak trees can live for 1,000 years, oak wood is one of the strongest and most durable of all woods, and having a “north star” symbolises knowing where one is headed. The name OakNorth represents strength, staying power, and clarity of direction. The entrepreneurs and growth businesses we support are characterised by these attributes.
