Skipton International is an award-winning bank that provides a range of attractive Sterling and US Dollar savings products for private and corporate investors, in addition to being a leading mortgage lender in Guernsey and Jersey. The bank also provides mortgages on UK Buy-To-Let property for expats and residents overseas.

It is through its open and transparent criteria, local decision making and a focus on superior service quality (including swift, locally-made underwriting decisions) that Skipton International has built its reputation.

Headquartered in Guernsey, with a mortgage centre in Jersey, the bank offers attractive rates, innovative products and award-winning customer service. Skipton’s mission is to help customers achieve their property owning and savings goals through delivery of quality products and an unrivalled customer experience. Skipton International has partnered with the Guernsey Housing Association, providing mortgages for its partial ownership scheme, and supports the Andium HomeBuy Scheme in Jersey.

In addition to the attractive range of savings products on offer, mortgages can be secured on Jersey and Guernsey residential properties, Channel Island Buy-To-Let properties, and UK Buy-To-Let mortgages for expats and non UK residents. Skipton believes its mortgage success is down to a genuinely personalised service and ensuring people can afford their new mortgage – not just now, but also with flexibility should circumstances change.

Skipton offers business savings accounts, which are also available to trust companies, and pension schemes. Skipton’s maximum account size is £5m, however, in specific cases, some clients are allowed to exceed this level, particularly if funds are deposited across term products.
