Weatherbys Private Bank launches Expatriate Service


Weatherbys Private Bank launches Expatriate Service designed for individuals who live abroad but for whom the UK is their long term home.

Commenting on the Expatriate Service, Quentin Marshall, Deputy Head of Private Banking said:

“Many of the millions of British expats living and working abroad would like to own property in the UK, particularly in preparation for their return.  For the majority, securing a mortgage is a total nightmare experience as banks have either withdrawn from the market entirely or tightened their lending criteria to unacceptable levels.  I firmly believe that Weatherbys Private Bank is different and can provide the solution.

“Our decisions are not based on credit scoring. We offer bespoke underwriting where each applicant is considered on their personal financial situation and circumstances enabling us to execute the transaction painlessly and smoothly.

“All borrowing facilities are assessed on their own merits and priced accordingly and our terms are flexible for the scheduling of repayments.  Service excellence is at the heart of our offering and family values of careful stewardship and attention to detail underpin everything we do.  The relationship we have with our clients is key to our success and delivering an unrivalled level of personal service remains our highest priority.”

Weatherbys’ dedicated team of private bankers work with their expat clients to help them achieve their financial ambitions whilst providing comprehensive services; from residential mortgages to flexible savings account options. Treasury experts are also on hand to help expat clients make informed decisions on foreign exchange markets when managing money internationally.
