Entwistle says the bank will be renamed, with a decision expected by the end of April. As the 25-strong team sets about developing the infrastructure for the bank, he says the aim is to combine traditional service with investment in a strong technology platform, developed by Oracle.
‘We would like to think that in five years’ time, banking will be regarded as a profession once again and bankers can be trusted once again,’ he said.
‘It is not about selling the latest product, it is about looking after the client and their family. This is why we set up Scoban and so many people want to join us and become shareholders.’
