Starling Bank



We’re a fintech business with a banking licence, fully regulated by the FCA and PRA. We were granted a banking licence by the Bank of England back in July 2016 and now we’re out in app stores.

From ordering a takeaway to arranging a babysitter — we organise our lives through our mobile phones. We thought it should be easy to manage your money this way too, so we created a customer-first, mobile-focused account designed specifically for the phone-loving generation.

We’re not copying the traditional banking model — we’re learning from it, taking the not-so-good bits and turning them into our best bits. We believe giving our customers access to a mobile market of products and services that best fit their financial needs, helps them on their way to a happier, healthier financial life.

We’re a passionate team of technologists, artists, money experts, designers, and marketers, who share the same goal of creating a better bank for everyone
