OakNorth Values

At OakNorth, our mission is to help the UK’s entrepreneurs and fast-growth businesses achieve their potential by giving them access to fast, transparent, and flexible lending solutions – no off-the-shelf solutions, no computer-says-no decisions.

We have six core values that underpin how we run our business and distinguish ourselves in the market:

    • 10X: aiming to offer our customers products and services that are 10 times better than the competition
    • One team: working collaboratively to achieve the best results for our customers
    • Momentum: ensuring that we put energy and drive into everything we do
    • Saying it as it is: being open and transparent with all of our stakeholders
    • Right ambition: understanding our purpose and conducting our business in an ethical way
    • Zero Base: our hunger for excellence and 10X means we constantly zero-base, adapt to our changing environment and are not captive to outdated thinking

By saving with us, customers understand that they’re not just benefitting from competitive interest rates that will give them a greater return on their deposits, but they’re also supporting the UK’s entrepreneurs and fast-growth businesses – the cornerstone of this great economy.

In addition, our customers are saving with a responsible bank that takes its role in society seriously:

    • Human rights and equality: we take due care in providing lending services to businesses, individuals and organisations that treat their employees, customers, suppliers and all other stakeholders fairly and in accordance with their human rights
    • The environment: we take due care in providing lending services to businesses, individuals and organisations that conduct their activity in an environmentally responsible way
    • Animal rights: we take due care in providing lending services to businesses, individuals and organisations that conduct their activity without the exploitation of animals or their environments
    • Economic development: we take due care in providing lending services to businesses, individuals and organisations that conduct their activity in a responsible way according to the rules and regulations in the markets in which they operate
