Who are TSB?

TSB offers a range of retail banking services and products to individuals and small business banking customers in the UK. TSB has a multi-channel model, including full digital (internet and mobile), telephone and national branch banking service. We believe that TSB’s multi-channel offer creates an opportunity for TSB to serve customers better. They want a bank that gives them access to both skilled people and easy digital tools to meet their banking needs and this, in turn, improves their confidence in managing their money. TSB continues to invest in developing digital-led products and servicing capabilities that meet customers’ needs now and into the future. This is fully integrated into the way we serve with a human touch over the phone or in our network of branches across the whole of Great Britain and ensures we live up to our purpose of Money Confidence. For everyone. Every day.’

TSB Innovation Labs is looking to develop more partnerships with fintechs and innovative companies in order to best serve the dynamic needs of TSB customers.
