Skipton International (Skipton) is established in Guernsey and is a bank wholly owned by Skipton Building Society, the fourth largest building society in the UK. Skipton’s aim is to be the Channel Islands most recommended bank. Skipton wants to help customers achieve their property owning and savings goals, by offering quality products and excellent customer service.
Skipton offers a range of residential mortgages for Guernsey & Jersey residents, UK Buy-To-Let products for non-UK residents and offshore savings accounts.
Skipton has always strived to be an effective corporate citizen, doing good in the communities in which it operates, and being fair and open with their valued customers is important. In 2019 Skipton formalised its approach to environmental and sustainability issues by choosing 4 priority goals of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
The United Nations Sustainability Goals complement Skipton’s ethos of doing the right things for its customers, colleagues and communities. Skipton has made specific commitments and is targeting improvements for each of their goals.
Joining the United Nations Environment Programme – Finance Initiative, Principles of Responsible Banking enables Skipton to formalise its approach to the Sustainable Development Goals and become a part of a network of banks with the objective of creating an era of responsible banking.
