Clydesdale Bank was founded in 1838 with a head office in Glasgow and a single branch in Edinburgh. Since then we have grown into one of the leading Scottish banks. We have often been the first to introduce new services designed to make life easier and better for our customers. Mobile branches, cheque guarantee cards, personal loans - all these were pioneered in Scotland by Clydesdale Bank. One element of our service that has remained essentially unchanged is our belief in the importance of building and maintaining relationships with all our customers.Just as our earlier fortunes were linked closely with those of Scotland's 19th century traders, industrialists and merchants, so our business banking services today match the needs of a new generation of enterprise, from the smallest sole trader to the largest corporation.
