Supporting Economic Growth

Alongside financing, sector-specialist insight and day-to-day banking and trading solutions, we work closely with government bodies to create an environment in which trade, innovation and enterprise can flourish.

Serving the needs of both UK and international businesses with an annual turnover of over £6.5 million, Barclays Corporate Banking sits at the heart of the UK economy.

As the long-term banking partner of mid-sized to multinational businesses, we support industries ranging from retailers to manufacturers, tech companies to hospitality and leisure operators. We are also one of the largest long-term lenders to the UK public sector, supporting colleges, universities and social housing projects.

We process about 3 billion payments a year to help keep UK business moving. Every quarter, around 9,000 UK exporters look to Barclays to help them transact securely and reliably overseas.

By integrating corporate banking with investment banking, we can combine clients’ day-to-day banking needs with large-scale financing to support their long-term ambitions. From mergers and acquisitions to taking companies public, we accompany our corporate clients at every stage of their evolution.
