Paragon Bank smashes £6bn in savings deposits in just five years

Paragon’s award-winning Savings division has attracted more than £6bn in deposits, only five years after launching its first savings accounts. The bank has 210,000 accounts with 78% of customers choosing to save again with Paragon when their account matures.

The specialist bank is going from strength to strength, a fact that has been recognised by consumers and the industry alike – winning a string of awards including the much-coveted Online Savings Provider of the Year by MoneyFacts, a Savings Champion Award and Your Money Best Online Cash ISA Provider.

Paragon’s savings deals are also a regular in Best Buy tables, featuring in newspapers and magazines coverage in every part of the UK.

It is part of Paragon’s ethos to ensure it reinvests customer deposits back into the economy, to support small businesses and entrepreneurs across the UK through everything from asset finance loans to property development finance that is helping to address the housing shortage.

Richard Doe, Managing Director - Savings at Paragon, said:

The popularity of our savings accounts has helped Paragon reach yet another milestone for the savings side of our business. We are delighted that in a short space of time so many people have trusted us with their savings. It is an honour to be known as a trusted name with consumers who want consistency in terms of financial products and customer service. It is extremely important to us that we build on our reputation as a specialist bank that cares about its customers. We’re funding a wide variety of businesses and play a part in supporting Britain’s economy.
