Our Pledge

We are committed to helping Britain prosper and help more businesses start-up, scale-up and trade overseas. We commit to:

  • Help one in five businesses start up.
  • Grow our lending to SMEs by £1bn a year.
  • Help more businesses export through our DIT partnership.
  • Continue to support over 80% of the FTSE 100.
  • Deliver the support British manufacturers need to compete globally and through our £5m investment in the Lloyds Bank Advanced Manufacturing Training Centre.

This is a time of opportunity for British businesses. With our support, many are already turning their ambition into action. Others are rapidly learning about the benefits of the dedicated service and support we deliver.

We are proud to be growing our lending to more small businesses.. We are proud that 8 out of 10 business loan and overdraft requests are approved*. But we are not complacent. We are acting decisively on our pledge, making excellent progress delivering on all of our commitments. But this is not the finishing line of our ambition to be the best bank for your business – it is the foundation on which we continually build.

* 8 out of 10 relates to loans and overdrafts in the period November 2013 to July 2016.
