About ClearBank

For decades, the clearing of financial transactions remained unchanged and unchallenged. We asked, ‘What if there was a better way? What if we could make those transactions faster, safer, more reliable and accessible to all?’

Through our banking licence and intelligent, robust technology solutions, we enable our partners to offer real-time payment and innovative banking services to their customers. Together, we’re meeting the demands of the next generation of consumers and businesses.

Our story

2014 - 2016

2014: 5 people came together and asked "‘What if there was a better way? What if we could make those transactions faster, safer, more reliable and accessible to all?’

2015: Time to turn this dream into reality. The team grew from 5 to 15 as we started building our platform & prepared our banking license application.

2016: WE DID IT - ClearBank gained its UK banking license! Now the real fun begins…

Fun Fact: Despite all the ongoing conversations with the regulators and payment schemes, no one else knew what we were planning. We were arguably the best kept secret in the UK Finance industry!
