Recognise Bank launches its website

Recognise Bank, the subsidiary of City of London Group plc (AIM: CIN), and new SME bank, has today launched its website, which can be found at .

Recognise is a relationship led, digitally enabled bank, focused on delivering banking services to the SME sector, which has often been overlooked by traditional banks.

Recognise's services are delivered through dedicated relationship managers who have a proven record in delivering banking services to SMEs across the UK through its London, Midlands and Manchester business hubs.

Existing customers will be able to access Recognise's cutting edge lending portal through the new website, which will enable them to view up to date transactional information on their loans.

The website also hosts the latest information on Recognise's products and contains insights on the SME sector from its experienced management team.

Recognise received its AwR (Authorisation with Restriction) in November 2020 and expects to begin offering personal savings and business savings products in Q1 and Q2 of 2021 respectively. It is one of the first banks to receive authorisation post Covid-19, and has already begun selective lending on an unregulated basis.

Jason Oakley CEO of Recognise Bank, commented : "This is an important and exciting milestone for Recognise, demonstrating our commitment to making banking easier and more accessible for SMEs across the UK.

"The website and our lending portal reinforce our differentiated banking proposition for SME customers, and in conjunction with our experienced relationship managers, enables Recognise to offer quality, personalised banking services to our customers.

"We are still early in the Recognise Bank journey, but we believe that our relationship-led approach, combined with the latest cloud-based technology, will allow SME's to focus on their business, and help Recognise meet its ambitious growth targets."
