Are we a good fit?
Who we support
Our banking services are designed for UK fintechs that want to offer regulated financial products via our Banking as a Service platform. We don't provide banking services to consumers or businesses directly. You'll also need to be a registered UK company limited by shares (Ltd). For more detail, see our eligibility page.
Your deposits are protected
Once authorised, we will be covered by the Financial Services Compensation Scheme (FSCS). Deposits held at Griffin would be protected by the FSCS up to a value of £85,000 per depositor. The FSCS imposes some eligibility restrictions. Visit the FSCS website to learn more.
