Who is Castle Trust Bank?

Castle Trust Bank is a financial service provider that keeps overheads to a minimum and uses savings proceeds to fund lending solutions.

It offers savings accounts, giving customers the added benefit of FSCS protection for deposits. It says it has "a strong understanding of what our customers need and we have built our savings range with those customers and their needs front of mind."

It adds: "In a complex world, we strive for openness and clarity. We place the highest importance on treating our customers fairly not just because it's the right thing to do but because we know that the trust of our customers is crucial to our future success.

We recognise that for many mortgage customers, traditional solutions don't cut the mustard. These customers can often have high quality assets but unconventional income and so find it difficult to borrow at reasonable rates and on sensible terms."
