Yorkshire Bank was founded in 1859 in Halifax, West Yorkshire, by Colonel Edward Akroyd. His vision was to provide a means for saving for the working classes. Though times have changed, the customer still remains the focus of all our endeavours. Each and every branch is dedicated to its local community. Each employee will strive to offer people real value from their relationship with us, helped by our ever-widening range of products and services.
Today, Yorkshire Bank is the trading name of Clydesdale Bank PLC and part of National Australia Bank Group’s UK operations. This allows us to offer global strength and experience, combined with the local service of an established regional bank, to both personal and business customers.
We believe that a bank should always play its part in its community. And the customer should always be at the very centre of Yorkshire Bank. That’s why our commitment is to always be your local bank. To always think about the services and products we provide and how they affect you. To always find ways to improve, to add value and do the right thing for our customers, our employees and the environment.
