We take our responsibility to society and the environment seriously. Our business and operations are conducted in a manner that calls for fair dealing and our products are transparent, fair and socially responsible. This approach dovetails with the principles of Shariah compliant banking, which underpin our operations and form the basis of our product offering.

We have been identifying the areas where our business activities impact the environment, society and the economy. You can read our latest Impact Areas report here.

Balanced Banking

Grounded in Shariah principles, our products are transparent, fair and socially responsible. We don’t make highly speculative investments or transactions. Our way of operating is stable, transparent, and shares risk and reward in an equitable way.

Our products and services are available to people of all religions and none. Many non-Muslims choose us for our socially responsible approach, transparency and the competitive products we offer.

In the Community

As a UK based bank, we wanted to tackle an issue that is close to the hearts of many UK families. According to Cancer Research UK, every two minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer. This is why Gatehouse staff chose to support Macmillan Cancer Support as our Charity of the Year for 2020. Macmillan Cancer Support provides specialist health care and advice for those suffering from cancer.
